About Us

Sharon Lamerton is a full accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly and is a specialist in the area of elder client law. Adult Social Care and NHS continuing healthcare processes are complex and difficult to follow.
We can provide assistance with identifying a package of care suitable for a client whether that is in their own home, in warden controlled property or in a residential or nursing home. We can help identify a suitable care home to meet a client’s needs. These can be time consuming and distressing activities which we can help alleviate for you.  Sometimes it can be a battle but you do not have to fight it on your own.

Our service also offers support to you or a member of your family when social care or NHS continuing healthcare is needed and you do not really know or understand the processes involved.  

​If you are having problems or difficulties with social services or the NHS continuing healthcare service relating to:-

  • N H S responsibilities, including Continuing Healthcare funding including assessments, appeals and complaints.
  • Social Services assessments;
  • Charging for Social Services, including domiciliary and residential care;
  • Disabled children and the Children’s Act;
  • Access to or problems with independent living services;
  • Access to or problems with residential care;
  • The legal requirements to obtain a Disabled Facilities Grant and adaptations to the home;
  • Direct payments
  • Mental capacity
  • Access to information and personal records.

We can help you with this. We can help you through the whole process or you can obtain assistance from us when you feel that you need it. It could not be simpler!

We can provide a breakdown of the processes involved and give you the whole picture when dealing with local authorities or NHS continuing healthcare teams. We can accompany you to meetings, go through assessments, draft letters or make telephone calls on your behalf.

We can help even if it is simply a no obligation chat to let you know that you are doing everything you can to get the services that you need.
