Caring for an elderly relative can be a difficult time,both emotionally and financially. Working out how to cover extra legal, medical and care bills using your own finances or those of your loved one can be a struggle.
When Julie came to us, she was faced with this dilemma. Her elderly mother Irene was suffering from dementia and had reached the point of needing “round-the-clock” care. Julie needed to find a way of covering the long term cost of care bills and everyday expenses, whilst also trying to find a way to fulfil Irene’s life-long wish to pass her estate on to her children, leaving as much as she could for Julie and her brother and sister.
