Should I Consolidate My Pensions 2nd Photo of Ian Francis

Specialists In The Care System

For many, the care system is complex and confusing, and it is a maze of red tape.

All too often we find "the system" has let our clients down - there are lots of possible parties that should help you along the "care journey", but knowing who to approach, when, why, how, and picking through the reams of paperwork or correspondence you need to get heard - is overwhelming.

You might be looking for help to;

  • explain who is responsible for providing and funding care, when and how much,
  • explain how NHS Continuing Healthcare works and review decisions,
  • review Local Authority Care Needs Assessments and Financial Assessments,
  • help get a refund if you have suffered an incorrect charge for care services,
  • advise on paying for care fees where you are a self-funder,
  • recommend suitable investments, and
  • advise on the role of Attorneys and Deputies.

If you have any questions, simply pick up the phone or drop us an email.

We want you to get the help you need and are entitled to, so your loved ones are treated with dignity and respect.

We will be delighted to hear from you.

What It Means To Be SOLLA Accredited

We have been advising clients on long term care solutions for several years now, backed up not just by professional qualifications but also by the membership of various professional bodies, most notably the Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA) and the Personal Finance Society, so we specialise professionally in care fees all the time.

We are proud that Ian Francis is an Accredited adviser with SOLLA. Clients requiring financial planning in their later life benefit from advice that is clear and concise. Such advice comes from an adviser that is suitably qualified and experienced to advise them and manage their financial planning.

What Our Clients Have Said

"Ian couldn't have done anything better. Everything about Ian's work was tailored to what we needed. The service provided was excellent. We had many questions and Ian took time to answer them, checking that we understood each part of our 'happy financial future'. Ian's knowledge was excellent. He was so professional and trustworthy".

What's On Your Mind? Let's Talk...

We offer a free, no-obligation, initial telephone consultation for new clients to answer some initial questions and help you with some first steps.

After that, we will then ask if you would like to set aside more time at a good time of day for you, when we can meet in person, on video, or by phone, whichever is most convenient for you.

If you would like to use our services after our initial telephone call then we charge an hourly fee of £150, including travel time. We can also agree on a fixed fee depending on what you need.
