Life Management Support

There are times in life when things just get too much to manage. It may be you are unwell, do not have time because you are simply too busy doing the things you enjoy.

Maybe you do not have the time to help parents manage their complex financial and health needs or it is not so easy because you live some distance away, work away or do not have the expertise to deal with the issues. Argo can help.

We appreciate that people have problems in life which have legal implications not legal problems that have life implications. We recognise that clients need a broader level of advice and support than traditional legal firms can offer.

For us it is not simply about the law. You are what matters and this means that you need to have the support every day to ensure you lead the best quality of life you can whilst doing everything you wish whether this is sky diving, reading the newspaper on a Sunday afternoon, a tropical holiday or simply going to the pub for a beer with your friends.

We offer help and support to:

Provide quality of life: We ensure our clients are part of their local community. We help our clients go to yoga classes, play golf, tend their allotments and have family and friends around them at important times of the year. We find out who our clients are and plan an active life around their favourite past times.

Meet health and welfare needs: We ensure our clients attend hospital appointments, the opticians and the dentist. We liaise with medical teams over treatment, attend hospital discharge and best interest meetings and care planning meetings to ensure the voice of our client is heard and not ignored. We build care packages which have our clients at the beginning, middle and end of the care that is provided and think nothing of removing care providers which are not fulfilling the high standards we expect them to achieve.

Maintain and or adapt property: Your home is after all your castle and why should you leave it just because you struggle to manage its upkeep. We help clients remain in their own home by ensuring its continued safety. This could be fixing a leaky tap, installing a downstairs wet room or arranging for the installation of a stair lift. If residential care is needed we provide help and support in arranging the transition from home to home.

Manage finances: We help our clients manage their finances so they do not find themselves in difficulty. We streamline the administration of their financial affairs, we search the best utility provider rates, we claim benefits and we manage bank accounts. We work closely with independent financial advisers and accountants to ensure our clients maximise their income and mitigate their tax bills to support their standards of living.

Emotional support at difficult times: Holding a person’s hand when they are upset or in pain is the simplest thing, but it makes the greatest difference.

But we do more than that. We care.
