Vincents offers free advice clinic in Dying Matters week

Lancashire law firm Vincents Solicitors is supporting Dying Matters Week, the national campaign to encourage greater openness and discussion about dying, death and bereavement.

The Lytham office is offering a free Drop In session on Friday May 17 for anyone wanting advice on planning for the future, including making wills, trusts, and Lasting Powers of Attourney.

Private client solicitor Zoe Fleming said: “Talking about death can be incredibly uncomfortable and making plans can feel somehow prophetic. This discomfort, which then prevents discussion of plans and wishes, is one of the things the Dying Matters campaign wants to challenge.

“It’s a subject no one really wants to consider, but everyone is touched by death and grief at some point. There is so much to be discussed in terms of how and where people wish to end their life, and practical matters to be decided, that awareness campaigns like this provide a really good opportunity to start the conversation.

“It’s well known that you go to a lawyer to make a will, but people often don’t realise you can also plan for long term or end of life care, prepare family members and protect your business and assets with a lasting power of attourney as well. We often work with families to support them through difficult times, but it’s actually much better to start the conversation long before, which can make the process easier.

“We deal with these important and often difficult conversations in a sympathetic and open manner to help people to get their affairs in order. By taking appropriate action now, people can be assured they have done everything they can to make things easier for loved ones and to ensure their wishes are carried out in a dignified and thoughtful manner.”

Zoe will be hosting the free Drop In sessions at the Vincents’ Lytham office in Park Street on Friday May 17 from 9am to 5pm, no appointment necessary.
