Patiently explained legal advice for the elderly

As we get older, we hope for more security and less stress. But often, our affairs can become confusing and overwhelming, causing us to worry about how we’ll cope in the future.

We offer you total peace of mind with sensible, impartial advice and assistance on all legal matters associated with getting older, from estate planning and Lasting Powers of Attorney to your health and social welfare.

We appreciate the importance and value of time – time discussing and understanding your circumstances and wishes in depth, and time to patiently explain everything in plain English so that you feel confident about your decisions.  But we also take the time to just listen – assisting and supporting you in any other areas where you might need our help or guidance.

We can advise and assist you with all of the following:

  • Wills and estate planning
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Deputyship (including registration)
  • Advice on benefits
  • Care fee funding
  • Minimising the impact of care fees
  • Handling complaints
  • Disputes
  • Managing bills

And because we know that it might not always be possible for you to meet with us at our offices, we are just as happy to visit you in your home (or in hospital) – even out of hours.

For helpful advice or assistance with any legal issues that you (or an elderly relative) are facing, please just give us a ring on 01609 780101, email, or drop in to see us at Place Blair & Hatch, 240 High Street, Northallerton, DL78LU.
