First Fiduciary Corporation works extensively with people who need assistance or lack the capacity to make decisions on their own. Our clients include individuals with cognitive impairment related to the aging process, people with mental illness, people with developmental and intellectual disabilities, people who are affected by brain injury, and individuals with a physical disability. Many of our clients retain full decision making capability but name us as trustee or Power-of- Attorney to handle the intricacies of their financial affairs.
We are able to implement financial and personal arrangements in order to maximize independence, the use of public benefits, and insurance. We specialize in cases where there may be family conflict, complex financial conditions, or advanced planning is required. Many of our clients have been fully in control of their financial or personal affair, but due to accident, progression of a medical condition, or some other unforeseen circumstance, have deteriorated in their abilities. We strive to be sensitive to the difficulties that this sudden change in independence can cause, consulting with family and professional to ensure our decisions consider the individual’s personal and financial preferences.
