Key Law Services: Elderly Client Care

Getting older is inevitable and can be a cause of worry for many people and their families.  There are two key areas we often assist the families of elderly clients with:

 

  1. Lasting Powers of Attorney
  2. Wills

 

Both of these give peace of mind that affairs have been put in order, to help the family in future years.  The combination of the two can save considerable time, stress and cost in the future and is a service we feel that everyone should be able to access.

 

Powers of Attorney:

 

These are put in place to enable a trusted person to take decisions in respect of health decisions and/ or to manage finances in the event that the client should become unable to take those decisions themselves.

 

If a person loses the capacity to make their own decisions without having planned for this, then the process to apply to the courts is more complex.

 

Wills:

 

Without a Will, any property passes according to the rules of intestacy, which may have unintended consequences.  Our view is that everyone should have a Will, even those who consider that their estate is not large enough for this to be worthwhile.  For example, we have seen situations where compensation was later paid into estates (such as the Miner’s compensation) which would not have gone to the correct person without a Will.

 

We recognise that in many cases the elderly client is working with their children to arrange their affairs, and our payment plans enable the costs of this to be spread over several months.

 

Arrange a free of charge appointment to discuss Powers of Attorney or Wills, and whether they are suitable for you or your family.
