Supporting the elderly
Our team is on hand to help elderly people and those caring for them, with the full range of legal issues they might face. We will get to know you, appreciate your particular circumstances, and offer practical, expert advice in simple everyday language.
We can either provide a full review of your affairs or help with specific issues like managing your finances, budgeting and completing tax returns. Our team also advise which benefits you can claim.
If health and capacity become an issue, we can help to arrange care at home or make the move into sheltered accommodation, care communities or residential care much easier. For example, we can assist with selling property and clearing out belongings.
Our team includes experienced chartered tax advisers, trust and estate practitioners, court approved deputies, solicitors and paralegals. However, you will have a single point of contact – a friendly face to guide you through the process and answer any questions you might have.
