Cost of care and later life planning

The experts in later life planning

No one looks forward to planning for later life care, either for themselves or those close to them. But it’s something we all need to address at some point, and the sooner, the better. With the right financial advice, you and your loved ones will be able to maintain their comfort, independence and dignity in old age. 


Dispel your worries over later life care

While help from the state is available for extra care in later life, it is limited, the application process is complex and not everyone is eligible. For many people, staying in their own home is a high priority, and our independent, chartered financial advisers can help you look at ways to release equity and make best use of your wealth, while protecting your estate for your dependents.

You’ll get tailored advice relevant to you and your anticipated future needs, looking at the following and more:


A complete financial approach

Our grounding in accountancy and financial systems gives us an edge when it comes to spotting opportunities and helping you to define your financial goals. Our combined tax and financial planning service can help you make the most of the tax advantages available on your assets, while at the same time providing you with the income you need.


Talk to an expert

Our specialists in later life planning will help you find an appropriate solution designed to provide an income to cover ongoing care costs, and where possible, protect your capital.
