Powers of attorney & mental capacity
Being diagnosed with Alzheimer's, or another form of dementia - whether it's you or someone you're close to - is almost always a life-changing experience. As time goes by, an increasing amount of adjustment is required for the person suffering mental incapacity and those caring for them. The management of the affected person's financial affairs and the potential use of their assets for the payment of nursing home fees become significant issues. You need someone to talk to about this who will treat you with sensitivity and compassion.
We have a lot of experience in handling the difficult issues arising from mental incapacity in a sensitive way. We regularly deliver seminars, group discussions and training courses to many organisations in connection with the elderly and the management of their affairs, including the Devon Partnership NHS Trust, Alzheimer's Society, and Carers' Association, to name but a few. We believe in providing practical advice which is tailored to the needs of the individual. We explain the issues involved and the options available in straightforward language, making clear recommendations and taking time to make sure that these are fully understood by all.
We can help with:
- Powers of attorney (for property & affairs and for health & welfare)
- Living wills
- Financial services
- Inheritance tax planning
- Court of Protection applications
