Power of Attorney
Enduring Power of Attorney & Wardship


Approximately 4,000 new cases of dementia arise in Ireland every year. As you enter your senior years, it's wise to take steps to protect yourself and your dependents.

Enduring Power of attorney

An enduring power of attorney is a document which is drawn while you are capable of making your own decisions and only applies in the event that you become incapable. It takes pressure and stress from your family as you have made the decisions as to who will care for you and be responsible for you while you were capable.

Ward of Court

Where an individual can no longer make decisions for him/herself, then the only option open to the family is to apply to the High Court to make the person a Ward of Court. The wardship procedure is complex. A Committee is appointed to deal with a person's affairs when that person no longer has the capacity to do so themselves.

If you need advise on the process and the work involved please call us and we will advise you in a sensitive and efficient manner.
