Elderly Client Services From Our Personal Solicitors
At Barker Gotelee our personal solicitors recognise that many elderly clients and their families face similar legal issues, such as:
- How to minimise inheritance tax
- How to protect assets from care fees assessments and provide for the future cost of care
- Wills and succession planning
- Powers of attorney
- Moving in with children – whether into your home, their home or a new home
- Entitlement to benefits
- The implications of care home contracts
Some of our clients want us to communicate with them differently and our personal solicitors will do what it takes to achieve that. Whether it is as simple as printing on yellow paper or making sure an induction loop is available, our personal solicitors (who all have direct telephone numbers) are sensitive to the different requirements of some elderly clients.
For those clients with reduced mental capacity, we will take all appropriate steps to help them understand the relevant issues.
Wherever you are in East Anglia – from Ipswich, Woodbridge, Aldeburgh or anywhere in Suffolk and beyond, our personal solicitors in Martlesham Heath, Ipswich offer home visits (and whenever necessary hospital visits) for clients who are unable to come into the office or for whom a meeting in their own home would be more comforting and therefore more productive.
