When people plan for their future they often forget to consider what will happen if they are not longer able to look after themselves and require care. Whether you decide you want to go into a care home or remain living in your own home, Plym Legal Services can advise you the best way to plan paying for your future care or assist you in planning for a loved ones care.
The Care Act 2014 and previous legislation permit local authorities to be able to charge for the community care services that they provide. Each person needing care is now means tested to see if they are able to receive assistance paying for their care or have to contribute towards the cost of their care.
Taking legal advice now from specialists in Elder Care such as Sharon Lamerton at Plym Legal Services, will empower you to make you own choices and make sure that you financially prepared.
For further advice about what you may need to pay please contact us or call us on 01752 905033.
“I would like to thank Sharon Lamerton and her team at Plym Legal Services for their invaluable, professional support in guiding me through the complex maze of our NHS and Social Services structures during a very depressing and distressing period of my life. My wife is in a nursing home with early onset, advanced vascular, dementia and after, what my son and I considered a badly executed, Continuing Health Care Assessment, I approached Sharon for her support. She quickly arranged a meeting to assess my concerns and knew all the bodies to approach in order to collect records and information so that she could launch an appeal in front of the Clinical Commissioning Group where she represented us. In addition, she has been instrumental in advising, contacting and chasing Social Services for provisions they should be supplying, and I have no hesitation in recommending her firm”.
“I am very grateful for the work carried out by Sharon Lamerton at Care or Not Ltd, for the guidance and knowledge, given in a friendly and understandable manner.

I cannot recommend her efficient, professional service highly enough in the area of special needs care provision. ”
