How we can help you

We are very aware that this is likely to be an emotional time for you with important decisions that need to be made around finances and the best type of care for your loved one.

We aim to provide clear advice so that those involved can make informed decisions, in the knowledge that the individual needing care has the resources to meet the cost of their fees indefinitely and importantly in an environment of choice.

We can navigate you through the care options available and assist you in making an informed and tailored decision.

What is the first step?

The first step is an initial conversation with you and then if appropriate hold an initial exploratory meeting, the costs of which are borne by us. During this initial meeting we would usually cover the following:


You / the person requiring care story along with your goals and objectives


Potential allowances and assistance available from the State


The options available and the considerations around these


The role and responsibility of the Local Authority


The legal power to act for the person needing care – Powers of Attorney / Court of Protection

Next Steps

Agree how to move forward

Shall we have a chat?

As mention the cost of an initial chat and any exploratory meeting is borne by us so if you feel we may be able to help you please contact either Matt or Peter on 01883 332261.
