Ashfords is a leading provider of legal and professional services to companies and individuals throughout the UK and abroad. Ashfords LLP has an experienced team of Private Client Lawyers who can provide advice and support throughout your life.
We advise on Wills, Inheritance Tax Planning, Trusts and Probate Matters, but, we also advise and assist people who are planning for care or who are finding their way through the care system.
Understanding your rights when planning or entering into arrangements for residential or domiciliary ("in-home") care can be confusing. Our team can assist you in planning for the time when you or a loved one might need assistance with day-to-day living. We can also help at times of crisis, to ensure you are not overwhelmed by the processes and terminology connected with the care system.
It is often the case that the need for support is only recognised at a point of crisis. The need for residential care may be identified after you or a relative has suffered an accident in the home, or domiciliary care may be required to replace help from relatives after a change in their circumstances.
We see our role as to ensure you are well informed, advised and supported during negotiations for funding and entering the care system.
