Considering and organising long term care arrangements either for yourself or on behalf of others can seem a daunting and unsettling prospect. We can offer advice that is both practical and supportive. We are way more than just Hampshire private client solicitors.
As we live longer, we are more likely to need some kind of care later in life. Immediate family members may live some distance away or have their own work or parental commitments, so professional care is often the only option – whether at home, in a day centre or a care home.
We have lots of practical experience of helping families understand and consider the various options, including advice about:
- the rules concerning personal assets and eligibility for public funding
- putting in place practical legal arrangements to allow others to help manage day-to-day affairs, such as Powers of Attorney or Court of Protection
- considering wider implications for the inheritance of assets, including Wills, trusts, tax and succession planning
We always handle any discussions concerning possible long term care with great sensitivity. Call us on 01420 82881 or click on our enquiry form to find out how we can be of practical help to you.
