Advice for the Elderly Client
Every adult has the right to manage his or her own money and affairs. Sometimes, however, our ability to do this decreases as we grow older. Whether this is caused by illness, disability, or an accident, there are a number of practical steps you can take to prepare for this.
As time goes by, it is important to get your affairs in order and make your wishes for what happens in future known.
A key concern is the potential cost of nursing care. We are able to advise what the real liabilities are and see that our elderly clients get the care they need without having to lose their home to pay for it.
Other key areas also include Wills and Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, making gifts and saving tax, advice on equity release schemes, property sales and negotiations with authorities.
Thank you for being so kind and understanding when working directly with my mother on a Power of Attorney.
Mr Robert Whatmough
