Over half of British adults have not made a will. Some may sadly find themselves in a position where they no longer have capacity as a result of developing a medical condition such as dementia, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson's disease or have met with an accident which affects their brain function.
In these cases, it is not possible for a person to make a will. However, this doesn't mean that it is too late and your have no options. It may be possible to apply to the Court of Protection for permission to make a will on behalf of the person who has lost capacity.
It is advised to work with a specialist lawyer who understands the Court of Protection and how to make it work for your family.
