A short guide to the accommodation conundrum

For those hoping for confirmation of what approach the judiciary is going to take now that JR is settled, sadly, this blog cannot provide that. However, this blog does take stock of the current situation, looks at how we got here and tries to offer some insight into where we might be going.

Powers of attorney: too risky?

The recently retired Senior Judge of the Court of Protection, Judge Denzil Lush, caused a stir on the Today Programme last week by criticising the lack of safeguards in powers of attorney and saying that he would not sign one himself. Judge Lush also contrasted this with the appointment of a professional deputyship as a “safer” alternative.

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.

The importance of exhibitions like Naidex

I am pleased that Kingsley Napley will be attending Naidex again this year.  As someone who attended the exhibition last year and took the time to walk around the exhibition hall, I left with a sense of admiration for the pace of technological and medical advances for those who have a disability.
