Keith Lewis, practice owner of Evesham based Family Estate Practitioners writes for the Observer
These days our lives can get so complicated! Having to deal with new and sometimes unexpected events can throw a spanner into our otherwise ordered existence.
As we become older what was easy, becomes more challenging, especially with the relentless march of so-called ‘Progress’.
Whether it be trying to sort out your parents or your own future living or care arrangements, dealing with pension benefits, or even an unexpected and clearly wrong utility bill for example. At times it
can feel like an impossible mountain to climb.
How do you navigate your way through the complexities thrown at you when you need help, or have a problem with the likes of Social Services, the NHS, or even the State Pension Service?
The lucky ones will have access to other family members, or even a close and trusted friend and
sometimes they can help take to pressure off, but spare a thought for those where this is not an option for many reasons.
Sometimes we don’t feel we can go to friends or family, as we don’t want to be seen as a burden on their already busy or complicated lives, or feel that the matter is too sensitive or private!
There are some excellent agencies, organisations, and advice services out there, but they tend to be specialised and often only provide just that – advice. Even trying to follow that advice can seem daunting.
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to find a service where you can talk in private to an experienced professional who will understand your situation and can help translate your issues into a workable plan, and most important, who is willing to take on the practical arrangements or task that will help you get the best outcome you need?
Well, there is such a service. It’s unique, only available in this area, and is provided by a totally independent seasoned professional that has been proving very successful outcomes for clients for well over 10 years.
The service is called ‘Senior Angels’ and is provided by a local legal specialists Family Estate Practitioners Ltd.
