A highly experienced team who look after the interests of elderly and vulnerable individuals

Elderly & Vulnerable

We have a highly experienced and dedicated specialist team who advise and look after the interests of elderly and vulnerable individuals to support them with their legal and financial affairs. We can act as executor, trustee or attorney.

We can support children who may have suffered injury at birth to centenarians who may be experiencing complications, related to ageing, in their daily lives. We have developed close relationships with community service providers and local organisations to ensure we provide a specialist collaborative team who will deliver a supportive service.

We can organise assistance with arranging care at home or helping clients make the sometimes difficult choice of going into residential care. We do as much or as little as each client requires and always with sensitivity and discretion.

We also can prepare Wills and powers of attorney to cover both finance and care.
