Littlehaven Care Home in the Waterside welcomed trusted partner professionals Tin Ansty and Andrea Waring to the care home to give a seminar to residents to help de-mystify care home fees and the legal maze when a family member needs help in looking after their affairs. Around 10 residents attended the presentation aimed at giving more information about powers of attorney, wills and planning for care home fees.
Andrea spoke about the need to act sooner rather than later before a loved one loses mental capacity. She noted “sadly it can be too late once a person loses capacity and this can leave a tricky situation for family members”. She advised on the need to make a Lasting Power of Attorney for both financial affairs and health and welfare decisions otherwise without these a relative’s wishes may be not followed.
Tin Ansty from The Wealth Care Partnership, award winners of advice on care home fees, spoke about the need to plan for probably the second biggest financial decision in a person’s lifetime. He says “with advice from a properly qualified professional the financial impact of care home fees can be reduced to give peace of mind to both clients and their relatives”.
The Wealth Care Partnership and the Waring Partnership will be setting up further seminars to care homes and associations in Hampshire and Dorset and if you would like further information about hosting an event or about the information given do not hesitate to contact Andrea Waring on 023 80849381
