Forward planning is essential when it comes to care, and especially in the case of a condition like dementia. There are many things to take into consideration such as ensuring a power of attorney is in place to make sure your loved ones have the power to make decisions on your behalf when you are no longer able to. Even if you are in good health now, it is important to have the peace of mind knowing that you have made provisions for the future.

PayingForCare is a not-for-profit organisation that helps people and their families access expert information on all matters relating to care. We have care experts on the phone to answer your questions and queries, a whole range of information available online anytime of the day, and we can also put you in touch with a specialist care fees adviser in your local area.

We will help you to explore all of the options available to you given your situation, thus allowing you to make the best choices to suit you.

Dementia UK is pleased to be working alongside PayingForCare because we know that as well as the practical and emotional implications of a dementia diagnosis, there are also financial concerns.
