Care after lost capacity

If you lose the ability to make decisions due to old age this can be difficult for relatives and loved ones. QualitySolicitors can help you plan ahead for a time when you can no longer share what you think.

No one likes to think of a time when they are old and unable to care for themselves. But it happens. Alzheimer’s, dementia, strokes and other conditions are conditions we hear regularly. Planning ahead means you communicate your wishes should you lose the ability to make decisions for yourself. It says how you would like to be cared for – it may include your wishes on medical treatment too. It also means your loved ones avoid the upset of applying to the courts so that they can take care of you – and it avoids you being cared for by someone you would not have chosen yourself.

QualitySolicitors help you understand the legal position. Lasting powers of attorney and living wills are explained. We also explain anything else we think you need consider using our experience – and in fully understanding your circumstances. We always use plain and simple English. And if things change, we can talk through any amendments. Our aim is to provide you with dignity at a time when you deserve it the most.
