It’s important for every adult, whatever their age, to consider creating an EPA.
There are two types of EPAs:

- Personal care and welfare – covers your health, accommodation, and associated care decisions, and comes into effect only if a medical professional or the Family Court decides you have become mentally incapable’. You may have only one attorney for this EPA
