Care homes can book free talks for their residents on wills, trusts and powers of attorney, thanks to Coles Miller Solicitors.

Topics include:

  • How to make a will – and why it’s so important to ensure that a will is up to date
  • How to set up a trust – and how they can reduce the impact of Inheritance Tax (IHT)
  • Probate and estate administration – helping families after the death of a loved one
  • Powers of attorney – how to appoint a loved one or trusted professional to help look after one’s financial affairs or health and welfare
  • Care home funding – elderly patients’ rights to continuing healthcare after leaving hospital
  • The Court of Protection – how it safeguards the rights of vulnerable people (Coles Miller Partner Stuart Bradford is a Court of Protection appointed deputy, the only one in Dorset).

On November 8 (10am-11.30am), The Potteries care home in York Road, Broadstone will be hosting a talk by Coles Miller wills and probate solicitors Anthony Weber and Joseph Edwards.

Anthony is a Partner at Coles Miller’s Broadstone office; Joseph is based at the Bournemouth office.

Coles Miller has offices in Poole, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Broadstone and Wimborne. The 120-strong firm is led by 14 partners.
