With over 40 years of working in health, social care and legal practice, Anne’s experience and most commonly expressed priority by individuals is their desire to maintain their independence. Loss of Capacity to make decisions about their lives, physical illness and disability together with the fear of losing their home and associated financial consequences, all factor highly in issues to resolve.
Ill health, disability or an accident can mean your independence and life can change in an instant. Sadly many clients and families do not ever speak about the “what if” scenario and the need for care which so often means there are no plans in place to advise on health and welfare or manage day to day finances. In our experience there is no one manual which covers such eventualities given everyone’s circumstances are so unique.
Developing a service that can both professionally advise and implement practical support to address such fears is the foundation upon which Paladin Advocates & Attorneys was created.
Paladin Advocates and Attorneys can prepare and register Lasting Powers of Attorney and also be appointed to act as your professional Attorneys for both Health and Welfare and Finance. We prepare Deputyship applications, aswell as advising appointed Attorneys and Deputies in their roles and responsibilities. We can arrange and monitor the provision of 24-hour live-in care specially customised to your individual needs. As Advocates we represent and challenge NHS and Social Service provision and funding assessments. Experienced as both clinical and legal specialists in all aspects of Community Care, we are able to signpost and connect with a range of expert professionals who will be able to help you.
