Unique Funeral Planning | Self-Funding Care Solutions | Wills, Trusts & LPAs

It’s the most natural thing in the world to want to take care of your families; which you can do even after you’ve gone!

It’s also the most unnatural thing to think about later life, physical or mental illness and consequenes of death, expected or otherwise, such as funeral planning.  However, the peace of mind you will gain from forward planning your end-of-life care, wishes and finances is of great comfort in otherwise upsetting and unsettling circumstances; for ourselves and our families.

All it takes is a little planning, and that’s where we come in.

The matters mentioned are not exclusive to later life, unfortunately we may find ourselves in need of care or at the end of our lives unexpectedly and in our younger years.  It could be our parents, as opposed to our children or siblings, who we therefore need to consider.

We will tailor our services to your individual needs and can offer cost efficient services packages.  Our experience, spanning decades, means that we have the insight to consider the most common concerns and can implement solutions, with simple steps.

Your Money Friend is here to ease the journeys that we may, or will, take to life’s end.

We specialise in independently advising on all aspects of later-life planning which includes considerations for Pre-Paid Funeral Planning and Wills & Trusts to ensure your wishes and legacies are honoured.

We can assist with arranging Lasting Powers of Attorney to take care of your financial matters and decisions if you are no longer able to; and thereby reducing stress and financial uncertainty for your family on the event of your death.

We can also make arrangements to fund better quality residential care.

Writing a Lasting Powers of Attorney

Lasting Powers of Attorney

If you lose mental capacity as a result of age, injury or accident, and have not nominated attorneys to act on your behalf, then your relatives will have to apply to the Court of Protection to nominate a Deputy to act for you.  This can be stressful, time consuming and expensive.

We will take you through the process personally and appoint an estate planning professional to draw up the documents on your behalf; at a fraction of the cost you might be expected to pay a Solicitor.

'We all put off thinking about what might happen in old age, our own or our family's.  We know that is a mistake but we still don't arrange anything.

After just a quick talk to Ted I recognised what I need to do and how complicated it might be.

However, I also recognised that Ted can and will help. He is a calm voice when you're not thinking clearly and I will trust him to arrange everything from care to funerals smoothly and without me having to worry about any of it.'

Sally G, Oxford

Having to fund my husband's funeral without a plan was a worry and a strain on my finances.

With the plan I now have for myself, I know that my daughters will not be faced with the same worries and will have the confidence to know my wishes are upheld.
