The Seniors’ Service
The Seniors’ Service has been set up to provide an umbrella organisation aimed at assisting people with legal and financial applications and documentation. Whilst it is likely to be of benefit primarily to the older generation, some of the services offered would also be of help to working-age people.
Neil Gayler, the founder of The Seniors’ Service, writes:
“I have worked in Financial Services for almost four decades now, mainly as an adviser running my own Independent Financial Adviser practice. In the last ten years or so, I became a specialist in advising those in Later Life regarding Care Fees Funding and other matters that are particularly relevant to that demographic.
I sold my practice in 2019 but have continued to provide guidance on “non-regulated” matters, and also expanded my activities in Will drafting and the establishment of Powers of Attorney and Trusts.
At the start of 2022, I launched “Making Life Simple”, a service aimed at helping those struggling to keep on top of their financial paperwork to become, and thereafter remain, financially organised. I also started to assist people having difficulties completing application forms for State Benefits, such as Attendance Allowance and Carer’s Allowance, and also Blue Badge and Travel Card applications. Towards the end of 2022, it became apparent that my activities were almost entirely focused on assisting those in later life, and the concept of an overarching business to pull everything together was born.”
The Seniors’ Service aims to help older people navigate many of the challenges of later life in the modern world. If you do not already have a Will or Lasting Powers of Attorney in place, it can be quite daunting to consider the relevant issues. Should you involve your family and, if so, how? Where to go to get assistance when seeking professional help is often a scary and intimidating prospect. Lengthy application forms, often requiring completion online, can leave you feeling shut out by modern technology, particularly if you are unable or unwilling to use the internet.
There are many other issues that you may need to deal with that are unfamiliar and, therefore, sometimes overwhelming. A bit of patient assistance from someone experienced in these matters can be an absolute godsend. We are not here to judge; we are simply here to help. Our services are customised to meet the specific needs of each client. We work collaboratively throughout the entire process and will continue to help for as long as is required.
Where appropriate, we work with trusted partners in the legal and other professions. You can, therefore, rest assured in the knowledge that things are being done properly.
