Care ambassador Trudi Scrivener from Ashridge Home Care will be raising awareness about the importance of planning ahead and knowing what your care options and costs are.
Every year thousands of families run out of money when paying for care. We’ve noticed that families are leaving care planning later and later and are often at crisis point with a parent or elderly relative before they start looking around and have no time to research the options properly. While people are clearly talking more about dementia (and indeed most illnesses of old age), it appears they don’t know what to do – or where to turn when the time comes to exploring care options:

Recent research conducted by the live-in care hub confirms:
