If you are faced with the prospect of finding care for yourself or your loved ones right now, you are probably feeling emotionally drained. We know how difficult it can be, to navigate these issues, because we have had similar, personal experiences.
We have known about the ageing population in the UK for many decades, however, it is only recently that the demands on social care have become more widely understood and publicised.
As families have dispersed, geographically and community / state support has reduced, more responsibility has been placed upon individuals, to look after themselves in later life.
The importance of planning for this eventually is essential. Whether your goal is to leave a legacy, provide for your own care, or to enable you or your partner to stay in your own home, our experts are here to help you navigate the maze.
