Expertise And Understanding From Irwin Mitchell
As people grow older, their ability to effectively manage their finances, taxes and assets can be affected.
With the onset of dementia, or after accidents or clinical negligence, many people can no longer manage their own affairs at all. As age expectancy increases, so does the incidence of conditions such as dementia, which is expected to rise to approximately 850,000 cases in the UK by 2010.
