We can help you prepare for the worst case scenarios and keep outside agencies from taking control by providing advice and assistance in making Lasting Powers of Attorney – legal documents that allow trusted family members or trusted friends to support you in all your dealings with social services, financial institutions and medical professionals, so that you continue maintain your dignity and independence for as long as possible. 

If things get too bad and you have left it too late to protect yourself, we can still help to support your loved ones by making an application on your behalf to the Court of Protection for a trusted family member or friend to be appointed as your deputy.

If you think that you are being charged when you shouldn’t be or overcharged for care fees then speak to one of our specialist solicitors and we can help you to challenge the system with confidence
