Elderly and Vulnerable Clients

Sofia Tayton discusses driving with dementia

Short bio:

I am a partner and head of the Elderly and Vulnerable Clients team at Lodders.

I advise clients on powers of attorney, Court of Protection applications, care funding, wills, and estate planning.  I also manage the financial affairs of people who are unable to do this themselves.

I specialise in the preparation and registration of enduring and Lasting Powers of Attorney, the appointment of Deputies and management of financial affairs, care funding and reclaiming care fees. I have a large variety of clients, although the majority are older and more vulnerable.

I regularly present at seminars and events, and write for publications on the work areas that I specialise in.

I enjoy meeting a lot of different people, and learning about their lives.

    • Elderly and Vulnerable Clients
