Our new Later Life Planning Service can help with the following…
Making a Will allows your loved ones to sort everything much more easily and is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. If you have not made a valid Will, your property will pass according to the Law of Intestacy. These laws will dictate how the money, property and possessions should be allocated, which may not be what you would want.
Lasting Powers of Attorney
This is a legal document that allows you to appoint one or more people to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf when you are no longer able. This prevents a stranger, or someone you may not trust, from having any power over decisions concerning your welfare. There are two different types of LPAs Property and Financial Affairs and Health & Welfare.
Advance Decision (Living Will)
An Advance Decision (sometimes known as a living will) is a decision you can make now to refuse a specific type of treatment at some time in the future.
It lets your family, carers and health professionals know your wishes about refusing treatment and only would become relevant if you're unable to make or communicate those decisions yourself.
The original, signed Will is the only legally binding version of your Will so it is important that it is kept safe. We offer a low cost, secure solution for document storage through The National Will Archive.
Appointments can be scheduled in the office at Newport or visits can be made to homes, hospitals or care homes. If you have any questions about the service or would like to make an appointment please contact:
