Elderly Client Services

Our Elderly Client Department is recognised as one of the leading elderly client departments in the UK by The Legal 500, an independent and definitive guide to the best law firms in the UK. Our team of expert solicitors are described as being 'professional, friendly and helpful'.  

Our specialist solicitors recognise that the specific issues affecting the elderly can be complex and often stressful. Many of the anxieties and concerns that the elderly have, whether that be the management of their financial affairs, payment of care fees or financial abuse can be alleviated by taking proper legal advice. Our team includes members of Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and Solicitors for the Elderly.

Disabled access is available at our offices and we are happy to make home or hospital visits. The size and strength of our department means that we can react quickly when matters are urgent and we have the depth of knowledge and experience required.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Have you considered who would manage your financial affairs in the event that you were unable to manage them yourself, either through loss of physical or mental capacity?

It is a common mistake to assume that your financial affairs will automatically be managed by your next of kin. Instead it is crucial to ensure that proper legally binding arrangements are put in place prior to loss of capacity. This is achieved through setting up a Lasting Power of Attorney.

Nursing Home Care Fees

A major concern for many elderly clients is who will pay for their care in the event that they need to go into a nursing home.

Many people who have been admitted to a nursing home due to physical or mental health problems could be entitled to have their care fees paid by the NHS. The law provides that if your overall care needs show that your primary need is a health one you should qualify for fully funded NHS care.
