Few things in life are more important than family, which is why our approach to elderly care is always empathetic and highly personalised. With us to support you, we’ll help you protect and provide for your loved ones.

Caring for the elderly is often deeply personal, and should be handled with the utmost care. We aren’t just highly experienced in this area – we approach every case with the compassion it deserves. We’ll guide you and your loved ones through every step, tailoring legal advice to your unique situation. We can help with: 


  • Safeguarding assets 
  • Navigating inheritance tax 
  • State benefit entitlement 
  • Setting up Powers of Attorney and guardianship 
  • Making living arrangements.  
  • Financial planning 
  • Home matters (including releasing finance and maintaining independents) 
  • Paying for care 
  • Changing a Will 
  • Setting up trust funds 


If you need to make a decision about living arrangements, or are helping elderly parents or relatives, we’re here to support you.  

I am most grateful for your kindness to me in making a painful process go smoothly.

Our Later Life Service can bring comfort and security to you and your loved ones during later stages in life. Dedicated and highly experienced, our team is committed to keeping your loved ones safe and happy (whether at home or in care-assisted living). 


Our services include everything from everyday tasks (like shopping and preparing meals) to coordinating all aspects of a transition into care. We appreciate that every family is unique, and we tailor our support to your needs, quickly adapting as they evolve.


Long-term care can be tricky to navigate. That’s why our private client solicitors will make sure you’re fully aware of the options available to you. We will help to simplify things for you, answer any questions you might have, and help you make informed decisions. Whether it's choosing between nursing or residential care or exploring financial aid, we’re passionate about supporting you and those that matter most.
