Good quality care is hard to commission, and increasingly it makes sense for families to provide the care themselves. Without advice, the carer may be at risk of accusations of financial exploitation or if they are an attorney or deputy, breaching their fiduciary duty not to benefit from their position. This course is aimed at Private Client and Court of Protection lawyers whose advice touches on the issue of families providing care.

The course includes:
• When Court of Protection authority is required
• The application and evidence which the Court requires in support
• written agreements?
• Obtaining and using a local authority direct payment to pay family to care
