Services for the Elderly

Our specialist practitioners don’t just administer estates.

We work with our valued clients throughout their lifetime to ensure that all issues such as Wills, inheritance tax, succession planning and trusts to care for loved ones are implemented sensitively and sensibly in accordance with your wishes and your family’s needs.

Barr Ellison is there when your affairs need managing during your lifetime. We can assist with making Lasting Powers of Attorney, both for your property and affairs, and also for your personal welfare. If you have not made a Lasting Power of Attorney for looking after your financial affairs whilst you are mentally capable, then we can assist your family to make an application to the Court of Protection so that someone (a Deputy, preferably a member of your family) can be appointed to look after matters for you.

In addition, we can advise you as to who should be responsible for the payment of care home fees if you need residential and/or nursing care. This may be the responsibility of the NHS (in whole or in part), the local authority or the individual.
