Think about making a will before it becomes urgent and often more difficult and emotional for you to deal with.
Prepare for your future, prepare a lasting power of attorney as this will save your family the hardship of applying to the Court of Protection if you lose capacity in future. If you don't have close family members, you can still prepare by appointing a professional as your attorney.
If you feel like your family may struggle to deal with your affairs when you've passed away, there are alternatives and you don't have to appoint them to look after everything. Appointing a professional executor can relieve the stress and allow your family to grieve whilst everything is taken care of.
