Care after lost capacity

Growing older can be an uncomfortable thing to think about, but it happens to us all. Alzheimer's, dementia and strokes, amongst others, are conditions we hear about regularly from our elderly clients and their families. We recommend that everyone plans ahead for this time and communicates their wishes to those around them, should they lose the ability to do so in the future. This discussion could include how you would wish to be looked after, with regards to any medical treatment or care plans, but also what you would like to happen to any property you currently own.

This could be one of the most important conversations you have, as it saves your loved ones from the upset of applying to the courts for this power at what could already be a very difficult time.

At QualitySolicitors Brennans, we want to help you to understand the legal position. We can explain lasting powers of attorney and living wills in a way that you will truly understand and answer any questions you may have regarding these processes and your individual circumstances. And if things change, we can talk through any amendments with you. Our aim is to provide you with dignity, support and professional advice at a time when you deserve it the most.

Contact QualitySolicitors Brennans to start planning your future. Give us a call or come to our offices, located just opposite the Wallsend Metro station for some free initial advice and to arrange an appointment.

      The current position is that a person going into residential care must leave their home to obtain the care they need and the care is very expensive. This justified the forced sale of the main residence. Thousands of people every month are forced to sell their homes to pay for residential care under the current scheme.
