This book offers practical guidance to solicitors who are advising clients on a wide range of financial and welfare matters. The issues covered are of relevance to all clients, but are particularly important for older clients. The book is divided into two parts, looking firstly at issues relating to 'forward planning' such as powers of attorney and inheritance tax planning.

The book then looks at a range of 'rescue remedies' for clients facing immediate issues including the death or incapacity of a family member. Written by two experienced private client practitioners, this book will be an indispensable guide for lawyers, social workers, charities and support groups and others working with the elderly.
