Care For The Elderly

Advising on the care of the elderly is a hugely sensitive area which requires a detailing understanding of the individual client, their needs and overall circumstances.

Our Private Client team have huge experience in this field and can provide advice and assistance on a comprehensive range of options available.

Our Services

  • Power of Attorney - which enables an individual to appoint one or more persons (called an "attorney") to manage their financial, property and other affairs on their behalf. The appointment of the attorney ceases however to have effect if the individual became mentally incapable of looking after their own affairs.
  • Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) - which enables an individual to appoint one or more persons (called an "attorney") to manage their financial, property and other affairs in the event of their becoming mentally incapable of doing so. The EPA only takes effect when the individual becomes mentally incapable and is, in effect, complimentary to an ordinary power of attorney.
  • Wardship - in the event that an individual becomes mentally incapable of looking after their own affairs and have not appointed an Attorney on foot of an EPA, it is possible to apply to Court to have one or more persons appointed to manage the financial, property and other affairs of that individual. The person or persons so appointed are known as the 'Committee' of the Ward and operate under the supervision of the High Court.
