Caring for the Carers Online Event
October 19, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+1
Join us online, on Tuesday 19th October to learn more from leading experts about how we can ‘care for the carers.’
There are around 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and as many as two thirds of these people are cared for at home by their families. Without the right support for primary care givers, dementia claims more than one life.
This event is FREE, however, information events do come at a considerable cost to the charity. If you are able to, please donate £3 to world class dementia research. Thank you.

Louise leads a research programme focused on improving quality of life and quality of care for older people, especially those with dementia and is a member of the National Dementia Care Guidelines development group.
Kathyrn will be sharing some legal tips for carers around putting in place arrangements for making decisions for others who lack capacity, this includes the preparation of lasting powers of attorney, applications to the Court of Protection and funding long-term care.
Ken will be looking at areas of financial planning considerations which are very often overlooked by carers, who are more focused on their prime responsibility of caring and forget to make sure they are financially cared for themselves.
Ken will also look at how to make sure credits are obtained to keep state pension up to date. He will discuss why it is important to review maximise your tax free annual allowance and consider why it might be advantage to transfer part of the annual tax free allowance to a spouse. He will also outline why it is important to look at how savings and investment are held and look at personal pension considerations.
