A leading law firm is launching an awareness campaign to the care home sector aiming to support elderly people and help them take control of their affairs.
The campaign, called: ‘Care Matters – Get Your Ducks in a Row,’ comes from the south west based regional law firm Trethowans and focuses on its Lasting Power of Attorney and Court of Protection service.
Trethowans, with offices in Poole, Salisbury, Southampton and Winchester, has produced a brochure and a series of illustrations to accompany the initiative. The aim of the illustrations is to simplify the legal message and make it less overwhelming and complex.
James Hammersley, senior associate in the private client division in Salisbury, said: “I think we all accept that Christmas and New Year are a time for quiet reflection and there will be many residents of care homes who find themselves alone or with families that live far away. They might have a need to speak to someone about a legal matter and we can help.”
