If a loved one is getting to the stage where he or she is having difficulty managing their affairs, it is important to make sure that they have measures in place to enable a family member, friend or professional to help them should the need arise.

Perhaps they already have an Enduring or Lasting Power of Attorney in place – or perhaps this needs to be attended to.

If at all possible, it’s best not to leave things to the last minute. Make sure that your relative has a say in what happens should they become no longer able to look after themselves or their finances.

We can provide you with legal and practical advice if you are faced with having to manage the affairs of a loved one.
