Protection and Advocacy for Seniors

Power of Attorney and Restraining Orders

If a loved one in your life is no longer able to manage their own affairs or make important decisions about their care, there are a few options for how to ensure they receive the care they need and that they are legally protected.

Power of Attorney – A “power of attorney” document allows an individual—or “principal”—to give someone else the right and authority to make certain decisions on his or her behalf; this person is called the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact.” The principal can outline in the document which powers the agent will be granted, but they often include authority to manage finances and make decisions regarding the principal’s care.
