Select to highlight:
A power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to give another person the legal right to make decisions for you in the event that you lose capacity to make decisions for yourself.
Capacity is defined as the ability to reason things out; to understand, retain, believe, evaluate and weigh relevant information. A person may lose capacity to make decisions permanently or temporarily, due to accident or illness.
