Mental Health and Capacity Solicitors in York and Easingwold Change to: Attorneyship, Deputyship and Community Care

Preparation for the future involves more than preparing a Will, which will govern what will happen when you pass away. What about preparing for a time when you may be unable to care for yourself or have to move out of your home because your loved ones can no longer care for you?

Have you thought about what would happen if you were unable to manage your own affairs because you no longer had the capacity so to do?

At Burn & Co Solicitors we can help you prepare for this eventuality by advising you in relation to Lasting Powers of Attorney and what to consider for the future in terms of who will manage your finance and property affairs and who will make decisions for your care and medical treatment.

It may be that you are caring for someone who does not have capacity and therefore needs someone to be appointed by the Court of Protection to manage their financial affairs and make decisions about their health and welfare. This is a Deputyship Order and our expert Solicitors can advise you in relation to this.

Preparing for a future that may involve Local Authority care provisions, when you are unable to care for yourself at home, often means considering the sale of your family home or other assets in order to meet social care costs. Unfortunately, many people start thinking about this issue when it is too late. Burn & Co Solicitors are experts in dealing with these issues and can talk you through the process of what may happen should you need to be cared for in the future and what this may mean for your Estate.
