Is distance preventing you from handling a relative’s personal affairs?

Would you like to make sure they have access to legal advice?

When distance separates you from an elderly relative, you may worry who they can rely on for ongoing advice and support to make important decisions. If their mental and physical capacity is deteriorating, you may want them to delegate responsibilities and explain their wishes to someone they can trust. Timely advice to put their affairs in order by making a will, lasting power of attorney and leaving instructions in a living will could be crucial in preventing complications and extra costs in the future.

If they need to release assets or use their property to pay for nursing home fees, you will no doubt want to make sure that someone trustworthy oversees the administration and that local authority assessments are fair. They may have issues with pension payments or need advice on age-related discrimination or poor medical treatment.

Our elderly client care team has extensive experience in advising on the full range of legal issues that affect people in their later years. We can visit your relative in their home, residential care home, hospital or hospice to advise them on their position and options. We can take instructions and prepare paperwork on their behalf, regularly returning to ensure that their wishes are followed. We can even act as a professional power of attorney, if required, to make decisions about their health, welfare and finances should they become unable to.

We understand how important your family is and our elderly client care service will give you peace of mind that they are in safe hands.

Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, our specialist wills and probate solicitors provides services throughout Staffordshire and Cheshire.  To find out more, contact our wills and probate solicitors or call 01782 577000.
