Elder & Disabled Care

If you have relatives who are elderly and frail, have dementia or are otherwise disabled, you and the others charged with their care, may find it hard to make decisions amicably. Such decision making is usually fraught with complex emotions.

Your issues could include such dilemmas as:

  • Should Mum or Dad still be driving? 
  • Is our relative receiving appropriate medical care?
  • Should we be arranging in-home support?
  • What about meals?
  • What about in-home nursing?
  • Do we need an ACAT assessment?
  • Does someone hold a Power of Attorney and if not who should it be?
  • Who should be managing our relative’s financial affairs?
  • Is it time to consider hostel or nursing home care?
  • If so, which family member should live closest?
  • What should we do with superfluous belongings?
  • How will the care be funded?
  • And the list goes on and on…
