Number One Way to Make Life Easier for your Family – Lasting Powers of Attorney
New analysis by Michael Hirst of the Social Policy Research Unit at the University of York, carried out on behalf of Carers UK, estimates that nearly 6000 family members become carers every day because something happens to a loved one. Caring is not an easy role and with an increasingly ageing population, the likelihood is that more of us will have experience of it.
An article in The Guardian from February 2016 (http://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/feb/03/caring-for-older-parents-funding-elderly-social-care) highlights the struggles carers from all walks of life endure on a daily basis. This includes:
· The imposed lifestyle changes
· Financial worries
· Reduced ability to work
· Lack of joined up working by different agencies
Whether the person requiring care has a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in place will dictate to what extent the family have control over the situation.
