Toronto Power of Attorney Lawyers Ensuring Proper Care of your Loved Ones

When the mind or body weakens, a person often comes to rely on another individual to assist in the management of his or her property and personal care. Such an arrangement can be legally formalized through granting a power of attorney for property or personal care.

A tremendous amount of trust and responsibility is placed on the person who has power of attorney over the affairs of someone who is no longer capable. In some situations, the trust granted to an attorney is abused, and it may be necessary to take action.

At Eisen Law in Toronto, we assist the friends and loved ones who are concerned about an appointed attorney. We have many years of experience ensuring the proper care and prudent financial governance of the affairs of an incapable individual.

Power of Attorney in Ontario

Attorneys, also known as substitute decision-makers, are responsible for managing the financial affairs or personal care of a person who is unable or incapable of doing so themselves. A power of attorney is generally granted while the grantor (i.e- the person giving someone else power of attorney over their affairs) still has the capacity to make their own decisions. This is in contrast to a guardian for property, who is appointed by a court. This is an important distinction.
