We are an ageing society and parts of the care system are already struggling under pressure. Fortunately, the live-in care sector is growing and thriving as demand increases.
With these facts and figures, it seems even more pertinent that we should be talking more and planning for later life. Circumstances can quickly change too, and regardless of age. A sudden illness, accident, or life-changing medical event can throw everything up in the air. This is why it is so important to detail your wishes and advisable to have an attorney.
We understand that this can all feel a bit overwhelming. Even if you are ready to start planning ahead. In fact, that is the reason so many people put off planning altogether. It can also be daunting thinking about yourself in later years, but your later stages of life can be just as enjoyable as your life is now, just in a different way. This is especially true if you plan well.
