The thought of needing long term residential or nursing care is an unwelcome one, but many people also worry that paying for that care will quickly eat into their savings, leaving little of the legacy they wanted to leave for their loved ones or other beneficiaries. Couples may also worry that a partner or dependant could lose their home to pay for care costs.
If you are concerned that the level of capital you are allowed to keep before you have to fund your own care costs will leave little for you to pass on, the key is to plan ahead. Which is why you need to speak to our solicitors at Poole Alcock.
We will put your mind at rest and help safeguard the family home if it is jointly owned, and advise you about the steps you can take to protect as much of your capital as possible.
Poole Alcock, especially Claire, were so easy to talk to. After our first visit they took away all of our worries and concerns about my will. They spoke at my level, the explanations and options were clear and the experience of writing my will was actually a nice one.
