As specialists in elderly care law and helping clients to avoid paying care home fees which should legally be paid by the local authority, Steene Law are often asked for their opinion by the media.
One in-depth article by The Daily Mail on the topic of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease leading to the need to be admitted to a care home, quoted Dianne Steene of Steene Law as follows:
Dianne Steene, a solicitor at Steene Law and specialist in legal matters relating to care fees, said:
“Too many people are ending their days having seen their legacies decimated by care fees – often because local authorities have misunderstood the law or because they happened to have the wrong postcode.
The fact that Alzheimer’s and dementia are now the leading cause of death in the UK underlines the need for the Government to address the care fees crisis with renewed urgency.”

“I cannot thank David and Dianne enough for the effort and knowledge they displayed helping me deal with my Grandfather’s care and the subsequent legal battle that came with it.
I had a complicated and, to me, bizarre yet worrying situation that David and Dianne both worked tirelessly on.
My Grandfather was a WWII veteran and was neglected and treated as a statistic by a care home and a rather unforgiving council.
I’m grateful that David and Dianne not only got the result I needed, but made it simple to understand and took away a lot of stress. I have recommended them to many others and will continue to do so. Forever grateful!”
