What is the main difference between an EPA and a LPA?

The old enduring power of attorney (EPA) was a power of attorney which permitted the donor to appoint somebody to act on his or her behalf in matters related to property and other affairs. The EPA still remains valid even if the donor later has lost mental capacity. In contrast, a lasting power of attorney (LPA) lets the donor appoint somebody to act on his or her behalf in matters related to property and other affairs as well as welfare.
