David: "You can say, 'I appoint my wife as long as she has capacity, but if she doesn't I appoint my children.'" Power of attorney can further be given to two people who operate jointly or otherwise, depending on the donor's wishes. David: "If someone doesn't have immediate family or doesn't trust their family, they often appoint a legal representative as power of attorney along with a family member - they often serve as a calming influence." A power of attorney must be someone you trust implicitly, as they have the legal powers "to clean you out and head to Rio. It may seem daunting to give someone such powers - particularly when you are in fine physical and mental health - but in the case of losing capacity, everyone needs someone to act on their behalf. David: "It is like having an insurance policy - if you have a car accident, fall down the stairs or have a stroke, your life can go on through this person.
