The Elderly, Care & Mental Capacity team deal with issues that typically (but not exclusively) effect older people.
We will help you plan for your future, whether that be by putting Lasting Powers of Attorney in place, or by explaining to you how the complicated world of care fee funding works.
If you, or a relative are facing going in to a care home or are wanting to start to plan for how you might deal with that if it happened, our team can help guide you through the process and help you to plan for the future.
If you have a relative who has lost capacity and can no longer deal with their own affairs, we can help you to make an application to the Court of Protection so that you can be appointed as their Deputy and take on the role of dealing with their financial affairs for them.
We pride ourselves on working with our clients and their families to make sure that we understand what the problems are that are facing you. We listen to what you want to achieve and then we find the right solution for you. We want to be the first people that you and your family turn to for advice, and not just in times of crisis. We strive to be the trusted adviser for you and your family and through our network of contacts we can help you find a solution to most care needs and problems associated with getting older, not just those with a legal element to them.
Our team are passionate and committed to this area, for us it is a vocation not a job. Our team are all members of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) which is a national organisation of solicitors who specialise in aspects of law that effect elderly people. We are heavily involved with this organisation and our head of team, Justine Clowes, is the current Chair.
