If I use Doris* as an example, who is a lovely elderly lady we have recently helped.
Doris came to us with her daughter some time ago, she was quite lost and anxious. Her husband sadly lives with dementia and was still at the family home in a semi remote part of the Wirral in a large house. It was clear that Doris needed help. We listened and gave advice about Wills (already in place) putting Lasting Power of Attorney in place for Doris and possibly Court of Protection application for her husband.
However, at that stage the immediate issues were really more practical and not even legal, and Doris was a little overwhelmed. We gave details of local care homes, who to contact and a local dementia charity for support. The family then went away to deal with the really emotional part of arranging a place for the husband to live, as he clearly needed full time care. We kept in touch.
When the situation was a little more settled we have since dealt with the Lasting Powers of Attorney’s, applied to the Court of Protection for the husband and will shortly assist Doris and the family in selling her home to move to a property more suitable for her needs and not as remote.
Along the way we have firmly established a strong relationship with Doris and her daughter.
We have recommended social events supported by a local charity and now that Doris is more settled and knows she has done the best thing for herself and her husband she is much more relaxed, and we all love to see her when she pops in.
We really do offer a full wrap around service and we go the extra mile because we genuinely care and we like to help. Plus we are experts.
