Planning for Care at Heathfield Court

A free event providing expert advice on planning long term care

A series of free seminars covering all aspects of long term care for the elderly will be held at Heathfield Court Care Home on Wednesday 24th May.

The seminars will cover how long term care options should be evaluated, the financing and funding of care, legal matters and understanding dementia.

Tim Dallinger, a leading social care consultant and trainer – with experience in dementia spanning nearly three decades – will deliver the Understanding Dementia and Considering Long Term Options Seminars; local solicitor, Victoria Turner of Clarkson Wright and Jake will deliver the Legal Matters seminar and Nicky Cave, an expert in the field from Eldercare Solutions and SOLLA, will deliver the Financing and Funding Care Solutions seminar.

Janet Collings, manager of Heathfield Court says: “We understand how difficult it can be when faced with a decision that you or your loved one might need long term care. And it is quite understandable that these decisions are often left until care is urgently needed. But better planning can bring real benefits and much needed reassurance to all involved. Our seminars are open to anyone in the community who would like to attend – everyone is very welcome.”
