A valid Will is the only way that you can be sure that your wishes are carried out after your death. Making a Will is an easy, quick and generally inexpensive process. Whatever the size of your estate, a Will ensures that you can use it to maximum effect and provide for those you care for and the causes that you admire. A Will is also tax effective.
If you die without a valid Will, you die ‘intestate’ and lose control of your estate. All your assets will be divided up according to the strict rules of intestacy. As a result, some relatives may be entitled to a share whether you wanted them to or not. You may also leave your loved ones with financial difficulties and a large avoidable tax bill. Bereavement is painful enough without the avoidable distress and hardship of intestacy.
In recent years gifts from Wills have crucially helped us fund our core nursing service and have also enabled us to extend respite care, to offer complimentary therapies to our patients and their carers and to provide pre and post bereavement support.
