Deputy, trustee or attorney and the recent coronavirus outbreak

Here at Tozers, we have been taking steps to ensure that the lives of those, for whom we act as deputy, trustee or attorney, will not be impacted by the recent coronavirus outbreak. We are remaining in close contact, by telephone and e-mail, with families, care providers and case managers in order to ensure that our clients’ needs are met during this time.

For those who do not already have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, it would be worth considering taking this step to enable your affairs to be managed while you reduce social contact. Although the Office of the Public Guardian is likely to be hit by delays, we can also easily put in place a General Power of Attorney so that assistance can be provided quickly.

At times like these, it is a reminder that we must all consider the elderly and vulnerable people in our lives. Why not check in with your neighbours to see if they need help with shopping or even just a regular telephone call to remind them that they are being thought of.

As a Devon law firm that has been around since 1785, our clients are important to us. We believe in working together, working with you to understand what matters to you and to help you navigate the unknown. We are Tozers, thoughtful partners for a changing world.
