Court of Protection can get them the legal support they need
When someone is unable manage on their own, you might need to apply to the Court of Protection to become a ‘Deputy’ for them – or for permission to make a specific decision for them, about their finances or health affairs.
Who can be a Deputy depends on the individual case, and can be family member or friend as well as a professional, such as a solicitor.

We can talk things over for you initially, for no charge.
