Elder Law

Securing your Future

Specialist Services for Elderly Clients and Vulnerable Adults

Arnison Heelis solicitors provide expert advice on the whole range of issues that may be faced by elderly people, vulnerable adults and their families. This can include Wills and Tax Advice together with Powers of Attorney. It may also include looking after their affairs, helping an individual or their family to maintain independence and advice on NHS Continuing Care and funding care generally.

We have acted for many families for generations. Our aim is to build long term relationships with all our clients and their families so we are able to quickly understand their particular circumstances and provide speedy and cost effective solutions.

Our new Elder Law Department can be accessed without the need to ascend stairs and there is free parking available outside.  This is entirely separate from our main reception area and has been opened specifically so that we can better serve clients with limited mobility.

If required we are happy to visit clients at home, provided they are in our catchment area.

The Elder Law Department is headed by Trevor Price who is a fully accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly – a national organisation of lawyers providing specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable people, and their families or carers.

We deal on a day to day basis with the reality of a massively expanding elderly population.  That reality involves:

  • People living longer
  • Traditional family and social structures breaking down
  • Greater wealth – particularly driven by rising house prices
  • A huge gap in the knowledge and skills needed to deal with this

Many people have a big fear of dementia and it indeed can be a terrible condition. However it is only a symptom of old age and with it or without it we all still grow old and decrepit and die of something. It has been suggested that the real sickness is our collective inability to acknowledge and embrace older people, to make allowances for them and to enjoy the company they still have to offer.

We cannot choose what kills us, but we can do a lot to determine how our final years are spent, and how those we leave behind are provided for. We list in the box above some things you may need to consider and ways in which we can help you.  If you click on any of these headings it will give you more information.
