When a person loses his mental capacity (eg. stroke, dementia, coma), he will not be to decide matters for himself. A Lasting Power of Attorney ("LPA") is a legal document which allows a person who is 21 years of age or older (the"Donor"'), to voluntarily appoint one or more persons called donee or donees (or Attorney(s)), to act and make decisions on his behalf if he should lose mental capacity one day.
A Lasting Power of Attorney in Singapore cannot be used until it is registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.
