All financial deputies and attorneys have a common dilemma: how do they ensure the finance pot lasts for the duration of the person’s life? Care is expensive, and so it is important to know they are commissioning good quality care and signing contracts that are fair, and at the same time ensuring that they tap into State support to make the most of the available funds. This course is aimed at private client and Court of Protection lawyers who advise lay people or act in a professional capacity, and use an incapacitated client’s funds to commission care.

This course will include the following:
• What welfare decisions are covered within a financial deputyship order
• Care home contracts- what are unfair terms?
• Things to consider when employing a personal assistant
• What is good care?
• DWP support
• Support from the NHS
• Support from the local authority
