Will my children steal my money when I'm old?

Financial abuse of the elderly is a shame on our nation. That the abuser is often the elderly person’s own offspring, acting under a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), is disturbing. And let’s not mince words; we’re talking about children stealing their parents’ money.

The role of a deputy for the elderly – things to consider

We may all be affected by loss of mental capacity in our lifetime; whether it is ourselves or a loved one. Illness, accident or even old age can have a devastating effect on our ability, and the ability of people around us, to manage day to day life. So what happens if a loved one, family member or friend loses the ability to manage their own finances?

What makes a good deputy?

If only there was a simple answer to this question but it is something I have been musing over. I am a solicitor and a professional Deputy – this is what I do, it is my job, but how do I know whether I am actually good at it? Obviously I would like to think I am, but then again most of us think we are quite good at our jobs don’t we!

It’s my money! Why isn’t my deputy listening to me?

‘It’s my money! Why isn’t my Deputy listening to me?’ is the title of a talk I am giving at Naidex at the NEC in Birmingham next week.  Naidex is Europe's largest trade, professional and consumer show dedicated to the care, rehabilitation and lifestyle of people with a disability or impairment and it takes place between 28-30th March.
