How we work

We start by talking to you about the outcomes and objectives that you are trying to achieve, then we prepare a written overview of our suggested solution along with an estimate of our time and costs. 


Once the engagement paperwork is completed, we then send you the log in details to our Carepal Connect system, so you can log in to see real-time updates on the case, as well as what level the current ongoing costs are.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Mental incapacity can happen to any of us at any time, if you are known to be suffering from a medical condition which may impair your judgement or ability to make your own decisions in the future it is worth taking the time to consider maker a Lasting Power of Attorney. 


As you get older a Lasting Power of Attorney also gives you the choice about who you trust to look after your affairs on your behalf. It is important to note that a Lasting Power of Attorney can only be made whilst you are still capable of making and understanding your own decisions. 


A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document in which you can appoint an attorney who will be designated to look after your affairs should the time come that you are no longer capable of doing so.  There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney. The first deals with your financial and property matters and the other covers your health and welfare matters.

Wills

Writing a will is one of the most important things you can do for your loved ones. We can advise you how to set out all of your wishes whilst writing a will to give you complete peace of mind.


Writing a will shouldn’t be something that you only think about in old age. Writing a will is so important so that should the unexpected happen your loved ones are provided for in the way you would have wanted them to be.
