Elderly Couples

Certainty. Security. Support.

Being sure that you, your spouse and your family are safeguarded in your later years provides fundamental security and peace of mind, allowing you to enjoy life to the full, free from worry.

You may want to consider a Living Will (or Advance Directive), for example.  This is a written statement (which must be made while you have capacity) of your requirements about end of life care should you become incapacitated or terminally ill.  We will explain clearly all the options and implications of a Living Will so that you retain control over your dignity and quality of life.

Perhaps you are concerned about paying for care later in life.  Whether it’s funding for care in the home or perhaps in a residential or nursing home, the rules surrounding eligibility for help with funding or assessing how much you should be paying towards your care are many and complex and mistakes can be made.  To avoid costly errors, we will discuss all the funding options open to you and advise you on the best way of protecting your money and assets while securing your future.

Unlike local authority support for which you may have to make a contribution depending on your income and savings, NHS Continuing Care Funding allows those who meet certain stringent criteria to receive a package of care, funded entirely by the NHS.  The eligibility and assessment process are complicated and often open to inaccuracies.  Allow us to help you decide whether this might be a possibility for you.

As a friend or relative, carer or neighbour, you may be concerned that an elderly person is suffering Elder Abuse.  Whatever the nature of the abuse, elderly people are particularly vulnerable.  As Solicitors for the Elderly, we can advise you on the course of action to take.

As well as Will writing, Estates and Probate, Powers of Attorney and more, these are just some of our Areas of Specialisation in elderly care.  So, why not let us review your affairs – providing as much or as little help as you wish – and advise you how best to make sure your assets, as well as your health and welfare, are protected? That way, you can begin to enjoy security and peace of mind now.
