I have MS and am now permanently in a wheelchair. When my legs stopped working, it was simply a case of allowing my electric wheelchair to take over. Unfortunately, now that my hands are misbehaving, life is becoming quite difficult. Emailing on my computer has been made easy with Dragon NaturallySpeaking technology, but there are times when a signature is necessary. I can get someone to ‘p.p.’ a letter for me, but there are certain documents (such as tax forms, share certificates etc.) which require my actual signature.
There must be lots of people out there with the same difficulty, but for different reasons. I know that I could add someone to my bank accounts, so that they could sign cheques, and I know that I could invoke my Lasting Power of Attorney, but don’t want to do this unless I have lost mental capacity.
Any suggestions, please.
