At some point in most of our lives we will find ourselves tasked with the care of an elderly relative. Indeed, as we are all living longer nowadays this is fast becoming one of the biggest debates of our time. We watch politicians sweating over the difficult questions that an ageing population presents everyday; on a domestic level, planning for elderly care can put a strain on family relationships if it isn’t handled properly.
According to a survey by Which? consumer magazine about arranging care for an older relative, 34% of those surveyed said they had spent too long exploring unsuitable options. Another 32% said they had wasted time looking at irrelevant information. Does this sound like your situation?
Establishing the right kind of care and subsequently financing that care, protecting your assets, your family's assets and making decisions for those who are incapacitated are common problems associated with these challenging moments. At Blair Cadell solicitors, we can help make arranging your care easier.
Every situation is different and our Personal Legal team have a wealth of knowledge and experience in assessing options and helping with decisions, including good knowledge of the care and nursing facilities in and around the Edinburgh area.
We understand that our clients face a variety of challenges at different times, often unexpected, sometimes demanding and urgent. We aim to provide efficient and cost-effective advice and our clients trust us to guide and support them in the right way at these times.
