Be Carewise With Your Clients

A Reliable Route To Protecting People When Paying For Care The right advice at the right time for the right funding solution

Most people wouldn’t take out a mortgage without Advertorial financial advice, yet many don’t think about this when it comes to paying for care. Good financial planning is vital. There are a wide variety of options available to pay for care and it can be difficult to know what is right for each person. We recommend letting your clients know how Carewise can help. Carewise was set up by West Sussex County Council, the Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA), Age UK West Sussex and West Sussex Partners in Care to provide trustworthy, independent advice about care and support and the most cost-effective funding solutions.

This is a free CPD event where delegates can hear from leading experts in the field of financial planning for laterlife and find out about the advantages to solicitors of establishing close working relationships with local financial advisers. Guest speakers will include Tish Hanifan - Founder and Joint Chairman of the Society of Later life Advisers (SOLLA) - and Dave Seager - Development Director at Society of Independent Financial Advisors (SIFA).
