Free drop-in sessions for anyone in Shoreham-by-Sea wishing to discuss their later life plans will be available every Thursday between 10am-4pm at one of the town’s care homes.
Barchester Care Home, Kingsland House, has partnered with local solicitors Cognitive Law to offer appointments to the local community starting in April.
Later Life Solicitor Richard Bates will be based at Kingsland House to speak with residents, their families and anyone from the local community wishing to discuss their later life planning.
Richard offers a range of legal and practical advice on all aspects surrounding planning for life in older age. These include the preparation of Wills, Powers of Attorney, but also care finding and funding, as well as wealth management and protection.
Karen Howell, Manager of Kingsland House said “We are delighted to have Richard join us on Thursdays. His legal advice will be invaluable to our residents and their families, staff and the local community. We welcome anyone from the local community to drop in while he is with us on a Thursday to discuss their personal affairs.”
No appointments are required; it is a free drop in session at a convenient time for the visitor. Tea, coffee and other refreshments will be provided, and Kingsland House will provide one of their offices ensuring full privacy to anyone wishing to discuss their affairs.
Richard said “I am really excited to be available to the community in Shoreham-by-Sea. As well as providing practical legal support, I’d love to help families start to discuss long term care. It’s so important to have a plan in place that everyone has signed up to. As well as providing peace of mind to the person in later life, it reduces the pressure and stress on their support network and makes for a gentle transition instead of something to be feared.”
