Kerry adds to so­lic­i­tor firm’s help for el­derly

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS -

A LAW firm is hop­ing to ex­tend its ser­vice of­fer­ing fol­low­ing the ap­point­ment of a new as­so­ci­ate so­lic­i­tor.

Kerry Black­hurst has joined the pri­vate client team at the Mac­cles­field of­fice of SAS Daniels LLP.

She joins from Lin­der My­ers Solic­i­tors where she was an As­so­ci­ate in the Health and So­cial Care team.

She brings new ex­per­tise to the firm, spe­cial­is­ing in the le­gal­i­ties re­lat­ing to the pro­vi­sion of fund­ing for adult so­cial care or health­care, and help­ing el­derly clients ac­cess fund­ing to sup­port care in their own home or in a res­i­den­tial or nurs­ing home.

Kerry said: “Cheshire East has the high­est age­ing pop­u­la­tion in the North West and there are likely to be many el­derly lo­cal res­i­dents who just don’t know where to turn for sup­port when they fall ill or be­come un­able to ad­e­quately care for them­selves any longer.

“El­derly peo­ple can very quickly find them­selves in need of sup­port from so­cial ser­vices, but get­ting ac­cess to care when they need it most can be in­cred­i­bly frus­trat­ing for both the per­son in need of care and their fam­i­lies.

“I can help fam­i­lies nav­i­gate our com­plex adult so­cial care sys­tem and en­able them to ac­cess the sup­port they are en­ti­tled to.

“I bring a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence in this field to SAS Daniels and I look for­ward to help­ing many more peo­ple in Mac­cles­field and sur­round­ing ar­eas ac­cess the right sup­port for their needs.

“SAS Daniels is no or­di­nary law firm and I am de­lighted to join a firm that is com­mit­ted to achiev­ing the best out­comes for its clients.”

Jus­tine Clowes, part­ner and head of the pri­vate client team at SAS Daniels, said: “Kerry is a very wel­come ad­di­tion to our team and her spe­cial­ism will help us ex­pand our of­fer­ing across Cheshire.

“As part of our on­go­ing strat­egy to grow or­gan­i­cally, Kerry’s area of ex­per­tise is a great ad­di­tion to our al­ready con­sid­er­able ser­vice of­fer­ing for the el­derly.”

SAS Daniels’ Pri­vate Client team op­er­ates through­out Cheshire and its spe­cial­ist ex­per­tise in­cludes wills, trusts, es­tate plan­ning, Last­ing Power of At­tor­ney and a range of ser­vices re­lat­ing to el­derly care.
