Webinar. Caring for the Carers
Tuesday 19 October 2021 – 2pm to 3pm
£Free of charge
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 caregivers, dementia claims more than one life.
Join us on Tuesday 19 October where we will be joined by industry experts, Professor Dame Louise Robinson, Kathryn Layzell, Partner in the Private Client Sector at Stone King LLP and Ken Hart, Partner at Hart Greaves.
Kathryn Layzell 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 Hart 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 maybe while concentrating making sure the one they are caring for 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.
