It is under English law, also known as enduring power of guardianship, and particularly benefits the people who are in crucial medical health and have deteriorating mental health.

In an unfortunate event where the person no longer bears the ability to decide these matters in his interest, the appointed person handles these matters in the best interest of the mentally-ill person and has enduring powers of attorney to sign, purchase, and deal with these matters.

It allows them to give this enduring powers of attorney to their loved one or their trusted lawyer so they can carry out the financial and legal matters on their behalf.
