A campaign has been running to encourage people to sign up for a Power of Attorney.
Every year thousands of people across Scotland lose capacity – it could be an accident, a head injury, a stroke or an ongoing progressive illness.
If you are in hospital or a care environment or even your own home, no one can act for you to pay bills, manage your welfare or make key decisions unless you appointed someone with Power of Attorney.
This campaign is encouraging people to make decisions that will protect them, their family and those they care about should they ever lose capacity to make decisions for themselves.
