Alzheimer’s or just getting old Thai888 Law Funeral

I tend to forget sometimes that I am dealing with real living people and their emotions and bodies. Making a Will or enforcing a Living Will after doing it hundreds of times makes it sometimes impersonal and robot-like. After all, it is a legal document. But for some they want their legacy to live on through a charity or helping their Thai partner, their family or sometimes even the gardener or the cook.

When a Will is made it normally stats that the person making it is of sound mind. However, my experience lately is that some of my clients have or are developing Alziemers. These people are elderly and living alone.

Alzheimer’s is a dreadful decease and most debilitating. And the worst is that each day it shows and the person forgets many things, even why they are in my office.

The disease gets to a point where the person needs 24-hour care. Care that is not really available in Thailand and so the person takes whatever assistance they can get. Someone to just be there in case.

The carer may mean well but they have no experience in looking after someone with Alzheimer’s. None.

I am not saying this of all carers but one client has an awful lot of money missing from their account. The carer was given the PIN number and access as sometimes the client cannot get out of bed and needs supplies. Each day several withdrawals have been made.

A lot of trust is needed here. It’s not easy and what else can one do in this situation?

If you know someone in this position then get them to make a Will whilst they are still competent.

Also, try to make them understand that someone needs to look after their accounts, someone trustworthy.

If the person has a large estate or more than 2 bank accounts, get them to start reducing all things down to a manageable size. 2 bank books – 1 fixed interest and the other day to day should be enough. And don’t forget the 800K in the bank for Immigration. And to go every 90 days and to apply for your visa every 12 months.

Not easy when you can’t remember much at all.

I did not ever expect this to be part of my job. However, I can help in a few ways. I am the controller of property for may clients, meaning that should something happen I can control the asset if it is for a person under 20 years old.

I can help if you have a Living Will or the Last Will and I am the Executor.

I cannot help if you have nothing in place and no next of kin.

Therefore I ask you to make a Will and make sure that a trusted 3rd party has your access codes and PIN numbers – and I don’t mean the gardener or the cook as the temptation is too great.

Please act on this before its too late. info@thai888.com

How to make a Living Will Thailand Thai888 Law 2019

Thai888 Law have upgrade out Living Will format to Switzerland standards. There is now a indemnity disclaimer to cover the Surrogate and the medical staff. Also a clause that allows the hospital to give “the Surrogate” the Testators hospital records. Please see Thai888 Law and Funeral Services should you want to make a Thai Living Will. Hospitals in the Chonburi area have confirmed our Living Wills comply with Thai Law Statute 12 and will accept it. However they request that you make and sign a copy of your passport and submit it to the hospital with your Living Will to put on file.

Living Will by Thai888 Law what is it and how to make one

A Living Will under Thai Law is part of Thai Law under Statute 12 of the CCC. Basically it gives you the opportunity when you are competent enough to make some advanced planning. 

Featured image

There are 2 condition where it can work. 1 is where you are in a terminal phase of illness and the 2nd is where you are brain dead through injury caused by an accident, stroke, or aneurysm.

Some call the Living Will and enduring Power of Attorney (USA) however it is specific to Thailand and so called a Living Will.

Our document is on the same page English and then Thai language. We do this as some of the hospitals have 2 separate documents and so one may be changed and we think if its one the same page then it cannot be changed and the Judge and or hospital can see what the Testator wished.

There are a series of boxes to request or deny treatment and the Testator should check them off.

There is whats called a Surrogate and this is either me or a friend that is strong enough to tell the hospital to carry our your wishes.

All is signed and witnessed by 2 people.

Basically you as the Testator are telling the hospital to deny treatment to keep you allow when there is no hope.

Pain killers to make you comfortable are what most people prefer.

If you want to talk about this or get more info then email or call.

I have one as I have no intent to stay on a machine with the meter ticking over. I would rather give the money to my heirs or a charity.

One stop Law Company Thai888

I heard a comment today regarding a one stop company that does all legal work and the presenter said it was unwise to go to a company like that. Really? Thai888 Law prides itself on making it easier for the customer.

They then went on to say that they do everything? I had trouble following the presentation as it jumped from subject to subject.

I can think of many first class and expensive law companies in the Pattaya area that do everything including advertising screens and lock security boxes. These are value added services and it is great for the clients. I am all for it and I believe free enterprise and if you can get an edge on your competition then why not?

The part that made me chuckle is that Thai888 Law has 2 distinct offices that each handle very different work. Through our standard operating procedures (SOP) we can and do control all aspects of legal work in many provinces. If you have systems in place then you can complete any task no matter how complicated AND all under the SAME company banner.

Thai888 Law has expanded over the years into an international legal service. We have the people and the knowledge to deal with an overseas call from another law firm or a frantic relative wanting answers.

Don’t be misled as most of the large companies in the World have merged into a leaner, faster, more cost friendly consumer friendly organisation controlling all aspects of the product. You only have to look at your local Big C store and find that they no longer just sell food items but insurance, electrical items, household furnishings or in other words a one stop shop.

Thai888 Law offers everything to do with Legal Service. This is normal practice. If we get a job that needs a specialist Lawyer then we will retain one. However in 7 years this has never happened. Thai888 Law has grown and just last week we hired another 2 staff that are more than qualified to do the work. Most staff are law graduates and others are studying Law or accounting or another subject that fits into the Thai888 mission statement.

Our clients like the one stop principle particularly if they are calling from overseas and need an English speaking person to answer the call and give them answers to their concerns. One stop. The relief they feel knowing that they can retain our services and work with us through difficult times is enormous.

If you look through our site you will see that we take the issue and carry it through to the end. During this process we deal with local and international governments, offices, people, several different languages and bureaucracies, the police, the family and friends and much much more.

One thing that really stands out is the need for English – a presenter and their company can loose all credibility when they stand up and say excuse me my English is not so good! I understand as my Thai is terrible – that’s why we have 4 English Thai staff and 1 native Australian CEO. If we need another language we have on many occasions used a smart phone to talk and answers questions with clients. I am amazed at how well this translator works an so I give Google and Samsung the thumbs up for their R&D.

Last there is a lot of radio talk at the moment on the taboo subject of death and how to handle it. I must say that Thai888 Law is coming up to its 7th year operating in Pattaya and during that time we forged relationships with Clive Monkhouse from the Allison Monkhouse Australian Company. Many things have happened during this time and one in particular was when Monkhouse had no presence in Thailand. Thai888 Law had been using and marketing the brand for many years thus proving our contractual arrangements with Monkhouse. As there was no Monkhouse, Thai888 Law absorbed this funeral and cremation work into its offices. We put people in place in Bangkok to deal with the Police Forensic Hospital and staff are trained to deal with the Embassies. Trained in arranging and making cremations as per the families request. Even sea burials. In a word we carried on. This relationship still stands although the Monkhouse banner is no more. All funeral, cremation, embassy work is done by Thai888 Law and office 10 is set aside for this work and the CEO Kelvin Bamfield controls this and the grant of probate. And yes we have a mostly female team that can handle things in a sensitive manner.

Thai888 Law does not do fancy advertising – we rely on word of mouth and referrals from previous clients. Check out our Google reviews.

Contact us for any legal matter and we shall do our best.

Guiding you through the funeral and repatriation process and Probate where the Will and the Executor is approved by the Thai courts to later repatriate your body, ashes and assets back to your home country.

Thai888 Law has been doing this for many years and were associated with Allison Monkhouse Australia – Sadly Monkhouse is no more and so Thai888 takes this responsibility.

BTW our CEO is an Australian and so there are no language issues. In fact he receives many inquiries from all around the World and works mainly on international probate issues.

If you have never experienced probate then you are fortunate as it can be a very lengthy, frustrating, stressful  event. That is why Thai888 Law has 2 offices creating a one stop office to handle all your needs and issues.

Many times clients make a few calls and we do everything from start to finish, as some relatives are old or sick or to tied up in their work to travel to Thailand. On top of that they don’t know the language and will need our services for law and translation anyway. This is why we have built a solid reputation for dealing with all these issues. A few calls and all is done.

A 5 star rating on Google shows this.

Pattaya City Expats Clubs Thai888 Law Probate talk 2018

Please go here to see the post presentation talk given by Kelvin Bamfield from Thai888 Law Company in Pattaya Thailand

The talk was regarding how many foreigners live and work in Thailand and accumulate assets over the years.

Once day they pass away and if there is no Will it is very difficult to get access to the bank accounts or the home documents (title deeds). SO who ends up with these assets. Will the wife or partner be looked after?

To be sure make a Will.

4 case studies were used to show how somethings just go very wrong – even with a Will.

All inquiries should be directed to info@thai888.com

Lastly Thai888 Law takes care of everything from making the Will to getting docs from the Embassy, contacting the next of kin, hospital, police, forensic autopsy lab, arranging the funeral and cremation, returning ashes overseas, applying to court, act as the Executor to do the Probate, selling the assets and returning the benefits to Beneficiaries listed in the Will.
