Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
Holding deputyship for your wife does not stop you changing your own personal will.
You say the wills are like for like, if it is a joint will, then there will be difficulties changing that, but I expect you have mirror wills, if there are two wills. A morrow will looks alike but is still a separate will, and you are completely free to go ahead and change your personal will as you wish.
If the house is jointly owned, the should the worst happen to your wife, the property by way of survivorship becomes your anyway.
