How do we cope with an aging population?
With an aging population, there are inevitably more people needing treatment, palliative care, residential care and support with both the physical and mental limitations of increasing age. And, in due course, it will mean a dramatic increase in death rates, as the first generations of people living longer pass away. Dr Katherine Sleeman, NIHR Clinician Scientist in palliative medicine, wrote about the issues for BBC News Health in March 2018.
Thinking about how best to help the older members of our community in a practical way, we offer advice and services relating to Lasting Powers of Attorney – whether that be drafting them, registering them or helping someone who is acting as an Attorney.

Crucially, we are experienced in advising and acting in the administration of an estate either alongside, or in place of, the legal Personal Representatives of the deceased. Probate, the legal process by which a person’s assets and liabilities are dealt with after their death, can be a complex undertaking, and we have the knowledge and expertise to each step more straightforward.
