Many of us will care for, or know someone who is caring for, a person with Alzheimer’s or dementia and the sad reality is that ¼ of us will require care at some point in our lives. Despite this, most people have no provisions in place should they lose mental capacity in the future.
We would like to work with you to offer a Lasting Power of Attorney service for your clients, to allow them to choose who would make decisions on their behalf if they become unable to in the future.
Whether you would like to offer this service yourself or refer your client directly to us, we have a team of Lasting Power of Attorney specialists on hand to help you every step of the way.

“Service was excellent and I always got a response to my queries when I phone the same day, even if the solicitor was busy. I would recommend the company.” (Mrs Cranch, referred client January 2018) “The Right Will and Estate Planning made everything so easy. Everything was done by telephone or post. We were able to talk to our own advisor if we had any problems at all. Our only regret is that we didn’t do it sooner. We are so relieved that we no longer have to worry about our health and financial welfare for the future.” (Mr and Mrs Buck, referred clients December 2017) “A very professional service from start to finish. Queries answered promptly, either over the phone or by email. Very helpful throughout, we would recommend The Right Will to all.” (Mr and Mrs Jackson, referred clients October 2017)
