Family support and coping with dementia - 18th June 2015
Recognising that dementia will touch the lives of many people in some shape or form, Warners Solicitors in conjunction with The Good Care Group and Goodman Care Fees Advisers, is hosting a dementia awareness event at Warners’ office in Sevenoaks.
We’ll talk about some of the practical and legal issues surrounding the care of people with dementia with particular emphasis on relieving the pressure on their families.
Simon Rozzier of Warners Solicitors is a solicitor with extensive expertise in Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) and Court of Protection applications. He will discuss the importance of LPAs and why it is never too early to make one.
Dr Penny Hibberd and Elaine Ferris of The Good Care Group will discuss understanding dementia and how the families of dementia sufferers can have the ‘difficult first conversation’ with their loved ones. Penny is a specialist nurse/Admiral Nurse and Elaine is the Good Care Group Area Director for Kent.
Neil Whitaker of Goodman Care Fees Advisers specialises in advising older clients, Attorneys and Deputies on the complexities of care fees funding. He will explain why it is important to seek specialist, independent advice when deciding how the costs of care should be met.
