It is a perfectly understandable aspiration for people to want to stay in their own homes and to live independently for as long as possible. Elderflower’s advisers can help you achieve that aim. If you or someone you live with is disabled you may be entitled to Disability Living Allowance or a Disabled Facilities Grant to have adaptations carried out to your property. You might want to protect your children’s inheritance from future residential care home fees and/or plan your finances in a tax efficient way. You may need someone to act as your attorney and to make decisions in respect of either your financial affairs or your health and welfare (or both). All of these issues require specialist legal and financial advice and this is exactly the sort of help that we can offer you.
