Community Care

At some point in our lives, most of us will have health and social care needs whether as an individual ourselves or as a carer for relatives, spouses or friends because of illness, disability or age.

At its heart, community care is about the care people receive in their home or in a care home, as complemented by health and social services, which are also essential parts of the community care law picture.

WBW recognises that elderly clients’ needs are specific and that the law relating to issues concerning elderly people and vulnerable people is both complicated and unnerving.

WBW Solicitors offers flexible funding options to all Community Care clients.

Our specialist Community Care team offer proven expertise and practical guidance in connection with Health and Social Care Services and funding for some of the most vulnerable members of our society.

Janice Courtenay

I had been worrying for a very long time over the need to alter my Will. I had many different problems that I needed to sort out before actually deciding how to compile my new Will. Janice visited me at home, we had a lengthy discussion over different issues and she helped me greatly to sort out my concerns. Janice started the process after discussion and after considering her first draft, I was able to make clear decisions on my final wishes and was able to make amendments to arrive at my final Will. I was very grateful for her help and advice.
