Furley Page recognises that elderly and vulnerable clients’ needs are specific and that the law relating to issues concerning elderly people and vulnerable people is both complicated and daunting.
The anxiety caused by the unknown is a common problem. Our specialist Elderly and Vulnerable Client team is very experienced and we will talk you through things step by step making certain that you fully understand the advice being given.
It is very important that you have enough time to make a considered decision about your matter and you do not feel pressured. We make sure you are completely happy with the choices you have made before we help implement your decisions.
We make sure one point of contact is arranged to handle all affairs, reducing both confusion and stress in the process. We aim to bring peace of mind by giving practical advice on everyday issues, as well as planning ahead for the future. All of our specialist team are members of Solicitors for the Elderly.
Let us know of any special requirements when booking an appointment with a member of our specialist team.
We understand that it is not always easy for our clients to visit us at our offices and as such are happy to visit our clients in their own home, or in hospital or a hospice. We are also able to make emergency visits to the hospital or hospice if need be. Details of this service can be discussed at the time of making an appointment.
Few local firms offer a specialist team to deal with complex issues affecting the elderly and vulnerable and we are very proud to boast such a wealth of experience and specialist knowledge. Two senior lawyers in our team are Accredited Members of Solicitors for the Elderly.
