LPA and AMD

Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) and Advance Medical Directive (AMD)

You can now get your Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) and Advance Medical Directive (AMD) witnessed and certified by doctors from Goken Medical Suites.

In these uncertain times, proper legacy planning is crucial in retirement planning and the potential event of total incapacitation. A Will is only effective upon the Will-maker’s death while Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) operates after the donor loses his mental capacity. It is therefore necessary not to neglect the importance of having an LPA.

What is the Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)?

The Lasting Power of Attorney or otherwise known as an LPA is a legal document which allows a person who is at least 21 years of age (‘donor‘), to voluntarily appoint one or more persons (‘donee(s)‘) to make decisions and act on his behalf should he lose mental capacity one day. A donee can be appointed to act in 

  1. personal welfare 
  2. property & affairs matters
  3. both personal welfare & property & affairs matters

 

The Benefits of an LPA

 

  • Planning early protects your interests should you become vulnerable one day.
  • Enables you to make the choice of a trusted proxy, who is reliable and competent to make the best decision to act in your interests.
  • Reduces the stress and difficulties faced by loved ones who need to apply for a Deputyship order, if you do not have an LPA in place.

What is an AMD?

An Advance Medical Directive (AMD) is a legal document that you sign in advance to inform the doctor treating you (in the event you become terminally ill and unconscious) that you do not want any extraordinary life-sustaining treatment to be used to prolong your life.

Making an AMD is a voluntary decision. It is entirely up to you whether you wish to make one. Anyone who is 21 years old and above and not mentally unsound can apply for the AMD.

 

The Benefit of having an AMD

 

One issue is that modern medical technology can technically prolong life in the final stages of a terminal illness. However, it cannot stop the dying process. In such situations, further medical intervention would be medically ineffective, and a decision has to be made whether to withdraw such futile medical intervention. Some terminally ill persons who are unable to express their wishes at that time, may want to be spared further suffering and be allowed to die naturally, in peace and with dignity.
