“My family and I had the absolute privilege to engage with the services of Nicola Hawes at Wace Morgan, and I can honestly say that the investment made was absolutely priceless! When it comes to Elderly Care and Care Funding, there are all sorts of things that one needs to be aware of in terms of the legislation, and Nicola was absolutely superb in advising and guiding us through the legislation, to make sure that we did not fall into the traps that so many people in the UK fall into when it comes to their options for elderly care and associated funding. Her expert and really clear advice and guidance ensured that we were able to afford and provide the appropriate level of care for our elderly loved ones. That advice is also combined with her compassion and complete understanding of what your loved ones are going through. Anyone who needs advice in this area absolutely MUST contact Nicola Hawes. As I said, the advice is priceless!”
“Over the last months, I have valued your support at such a difficult time and found it very reassuring that you were there with such real knowledge of the ‘system’ – to guide me through.”
“I wanted to thank you for all of the effort and professional advice you have given me over the past years during a time of much stress and confusion. You gave understandable and friendly advice which is so important in distressing circumstances and has been appreciated right to the end. I would certainly recommend you and Wace Morgan to all I know”.
