International and Cross-Border Estate Planning and Wills

Parkinson’s UK teams up with Stone King to give practical advice and share invaluable information and ideas on support networks

Parkinson’s and me: creating your safety net, finding the balance

A diagnosis of Parkinson’s can take away your control of everyday life and all those things you take for granted.

Join us on Tuesday 3 February 2015 to hear how others have dealt with their own Parkinson’s diagnoses and how they have created personal ‘safety nets’ to take back control and go on living as normally as possible.

The speakers, which will constitute the expert panel, will discuss living and working with Parkinson’s, accessing care and anticipating financial concerns.

‘Eligible’ Needs

A colleague asked me recently if I could distil the Care Act into a few easy messages, relevant for people who might soon need to make plans for their future care needs, or for those who have parents or grandparents who could do with some support in the not too distant future.

In order to answer my colleague, I looked up the Care Act and examined all 129 sections and 8 schedules of the new law. I read about duties, and financial caps. I read about personal budgets, direct payments, deferred payments and assessments and, to be honest, I began to get a bit confused.
