The incapacity crisis: a nation unprepared

This week is the launch of Solicitors for the Elderly campaign #ChoiceNotChance, raising awareness of the important, but little used, health and welfare lasting power of attorney (LPA). Don't leave life-changing, highly personal end of life care decisions in the hands of strangers.
  • Over a third (36%) of people have not made any provisions for later life, including saving for retirement, putting into a pension, writing a will or creating an LPA
  • 97% of people are leaving health and welfare decions to chance
  • 70% of those polled would like a family member to make medical and care decisions on their behalf, in the event of mental capacity - in reality this won't happen without an LPA
  • 79% of people haven't discussed their medical or care wishes with loved ones; of those, 27% haven't even thought about their wishes
  • Over half (58%) of Brits incorrectly believe that the NHS organ donar register carries all the information needed to ensure organs are donated.
