If you or a loved one has dementia, creating a Will and establishing future care can be difficult. At Romain Coleman, our elderly care solicitors offer support and advice to help you make an informed decision on the steps you need to take to secure a stable future for yourself and your family.

Your care needs

Writing a Living Will is an important step that you should consider. If you have been diagnosed with dementia, it is crucial that you take the time to think about what you require from any potential long-term care. If you aren’t sure what a Living Will is, read our post on Should I make a Living Will?.

We can even manage your legal arrangements on your behalf, to ensure that you’re getting the care you deserve. Our goal is to reduce the stress and worry of dealing with this alone.

As part of our elderly care service, our professional elderly care solicitors will sit with you to discuss in-depth the range of advice, including information on:
