“Lucy, may we take the opportunity to thank you for your help. I know when I first rang and spoke to you over three years ago on Jim’s behalf, I felt we had the right person and specialist advice, which has proved to be the case. It made a huge difference to him because we could provide him with care on a day to day basis and as his LPA attorneys, our responsibilities were enshrined by law. It empowered us to care for him, which any of us could hope when it is our turn. “
