Deputyship Order to enable us to take care of an elderly gentleman
We were recently instructed through social services to assist an elderly gentleman who was suffering from dementia and unable to live in his own home without support. We successfully applied for a deputyship order through the Court of Protection, appointing two individuals from this firm as his deputies. Once the court order was in place, our Court of Protection team worked alongside social services to ensure the elderly gentleman had the necessary support in place to remain living independently in his own home. We organised carers to attend the gentleman's personal needs, purchase groceries and arrange for meals to be delivered on a regular basis and cleaners to clean and organise the property, to provide a safe and secure environment for a vulnerable gentleman. We were also able to reorganise and streamline the gentleman's finances, which resulted in reducing his monthly outgoings and increasing his income.
