Your choice of Solicitors For The Elderly
Later life presents some specific challenges. We decline physically and mentally. We’ll need a degree of care. And we’ll want to make sure that our family’s future is provided for. That’s the reality. We shouldn’t shy away from it.
Solicitors for the Elderly
At Gillhams we’re practical, understanding lawyers. We’re also specialist Solicitors for the Elderly. That means that we deal with the issues that affect older people – estate planning, wills, trusts, powers of attorney, care home contracts, long-term care and mental incapacity, if it arises. That’s a snapshot. In practice, this is a wide-ranging legal area. And we cover everything.
Solicitors for the Elderly isn’t just a description of who we are. It’s also the name of the national organisation of lawyers who advise older and vulnerable people, their families and carers. We’re proud to be a part of this, and we recognise the responsibility that our specialism as Solicitors for the Elderly offers clients in both the short and longer term.
So what are the benefits of working with a solicitor who is a member of Solicitors for the Elderly? Well, you’ll find that we’re lawyers who deal day in, day out with the financial affairs of older clients. We possess a good medical knowledge, we understand the effects of illnesses like dementia, as well as the physical and emotional effects of no longer being able to do the things you used to. And we’re solicitors that take all these constraints into account in delivering the best legal advice and support to you and your loved ones in a clear and sensitive way.
