The next Family Finances Group (FFG) meeting will be on Thursday 20 February, when our Guest Speaker will be Chris Cain of Grace Consulting, based in Albury, which specializes in advising families in connection with choosing appropriate care when it is needed – often with little warning or preparation.
Chris will talk about their experience in helping their clients choose “what is best for the person”, which ranges from care in their own home to choosing a suitable Care/Nursing Home close to the family that has the best facilities and staff who are experienced in the particular needs of the person concerned. He will also briefly discuss the funding of care, including the potential support available and considers that the “Best” is not always the most expensive.
The Grace Consulting team sometimes works with families who need assistance “convincing the family of what is best for the Client” – and, in this context, remember the old adage “Keep your relationship with your children strong, because it is they who are likely to eventually choose your Care Home!”
Grace Consulting offers a UK-wide service, so it can help in connection with relatives living in any part of the country.
So why not come along to the Family Finances Group meeting next Thursday, when you will be free to ask any questions that you may have on this difficult and sensitive topic and will be better prepared if “Care” is ever needed within your family.
We gather for coffee and biscuits at Weybourne House from 9.45am for a 10.00am start of the meeting and aim to finish by noon.
All Probus ’83 members are welcome.
