As the worry of paying for care in older age becomes a greater issue, so does the anxiety about who will be able to manage our finances and ensure all assets are correctly and efficiently handled. When an individual can no longer manage their own affairs, whether it be through physical or mental illness, it is essential to have an Attorney or Deputy who can act in their place. An appointed Attorney or Deputy then has the responsibility of dealing with difficult decisions such as:-
Selling a Property
Maximising the efficiency of the Assets
Paying for Care Fees
Claiming available allowances and benefits (where applicable)
While in most circumstances, these tasks are best dealt with by family and friends, where not possible, we can assist with some or all of these tasks on your behalf.
