Caring for someone who is critically ill in the UK
28th October 2019
The book, ‘Who can care for me now?’, is our client Elizabeth Orr’s moving story about her brother Norman who was subjected to so much suffering in the last months of his life.
Amongst many other important things, Elizabeth highlights the importance of everyone having Lasting Power of Attorneys (LPAs) in place: LPA Property & Finance and LPA Health & Welfare. Many know about, but put off the first and, most do not know about the second.
LPAs don’t take long to complete and they take six weeks to register and form a vital part in making it easier to arrange end of life care for your next of kin and other people you care about.
In his foreword for Elizabeth’s book, HarperLees’ Director, Adrian Quick said, “I will do everything in my power using my expertise as a specialist and my contacts at SOLLA (Society of Later Life Advisers) to promote Elizabeth’s book to the relevant sectors and the general public. Our goal – to raise the awareness of ensuring the correct legal documentation is in place before the worst happens.”
Book sales are increasing and Elizabeth is speaking at the Essex SOLLA Conference and Personal Finance Society Essex later this year. SOLLA was established in 2008 as a not for profit organisation dedicated to higher standards and accessibility to regulated financial advice for older people and their families.
All full members of the Society must achieve the Later Life Adviser Accreditation and adhere to a Code of Practice https://societyoflaterlifeadvisers.co.uk/About/Code-of-practice
