Everybody knows that when you die you should have made a will, and your will will state who it is you want to look after your affairs for you when you have died.
But what happens if you're incapable of looking after your affairs before you die? What can you do to ensure that your affairs are properly looked after while you're still alive? Or what if you have a relative in this situation? What can you do for them?
In law a will is of no relevance to this problem because a will is a worthless piece of paper until such time as you die, whereupon it comes into effect. Until you die it has no effect at all. So it cannot assist with this problem of incapacity during your lifetime. What then do you do about that?
