Our Team Expertise and Experience

We are passionate and love nothing more than helping solve our clients' problems with great advice - especially to guide our clients through the "care maze" and set up solid plans - so we created Advice About Care just for you!

Our role as independent care advisers is simple - help you understand your rights, reduce "complexity" into "simplicity", and give you a practical action plan to solve what's worrying you.

We offer a free, no-obligation, initial telephone consultation for new clients to answer some initial questions and help you with some first steps.

After that, we will then ask if you would like to set aside more time at a good time of day for you, when we can meet in person, on video, or by phone, whichever is most convenient for you.

So, contact us today:

Our Team Photo of Farley

About Farley

Be prepared to hear about our key team member called Farley, the Labrador Retriever.

He first arrived into the family as a 'Guide Dogs for the Blind' puppy but didn’t quite make their grade.

Quite a story, involving Emma hood-winking Ian into having a puppy, then Ian keeping Farley after Guide Dogs asked if we would take him back!

Farley is the office's team official stamp-licker, guest-greeter, and foot-warmer, and doesn't mind being the centre of attention if guests insist...

About Ian Francis

Ian has been married to Emma, his best friend, tireless listener, and greatest encourager, for twenty years.

He has three sons, three grandsons, and enjoys his family time, food, wine, rugby, and walking Farley.

With having spent over 30 years involved with financial services, in many senior roles including independent financial advice and regulation, Ian is well placed to give high-quality advice on all sorts of problems.

In addition to a wide range of qualifications, accreditations, and professional memberships, Ian has also passed specialist exams for equity release and long-term care advice.

We are all a team in the office, working together to help all our clients get the best service and support, solving our client's problems, and making their lives financially happier.

About Emma Francis

Emma manages the office team in Bassingham, guarding all that goes on!

Having already cycled in northern India to raise money for women’s cancer charities, Emma's next expedition for the same charities will be in Sri Lanka.

A proud mum, nanny (and very lucky wife), and talented artist, the world rightly revolves around Emma.

Being the lead team member you will usually hear Emma answer the phone and make any visitor most welcome.

Accredited By The Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA)

We have been advising clients on long term care solutions for several years now, backed up not just by professional qualifications but also by the membership of various professional bodies, most notably the Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA) and the Personal Finance Society, so we specialise professionally in care fees all the time.

We are proud that Ian Francis is an Accredited adviser with SOLLA. Clients requiring financial planning in their later life benefit from advice that is clear and concise. Such advice comes from an adviser that is suitably qualified and experienced to advise them and manage their financial planning.

What's On Your Mind? Let's Talk...

We offer a free, no-obligation, initial telephone consultation for new clients to answer some initial questions and help you with some first steps.

After that, we will then ask if you would like to set aside more time at a good time of day for you, when we can meet in person, on video, or by phone, whichever is most convenient for you.

If you would like to use our services after our initial telephone call then we charge an hourly fee of £150, including travel time. We can also agree on a fixed fee depending on what you need.

You get the answers to your questions from a specialist professional, far quicker and more reliably than searching on Google!
