A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that gives a person(s) of your choice power to deal with your affairs if you become unable to do so for some reason such as loss of mental capacity, illness or accident.
Mae Atwrneiaeth Arhosol (LPA) yn ddogfen gyfreithiol sy'n rhoi pŵer i berson(au) o’ch dewis i ddelio â'ch materion os na allwch wneud hynny am ryw reswm, megis colli galluedd meddyliol, salwch neu ddamwain.
