Saving your inheritance! This is a topic mentioned by many of our clients as concerns rise regarding medication and the latest in our health system assisting in helping us all live longer in life. However, many parents and family members are having to reside in a residential home either through eventual ill health, strokes, dementia, Alzheimer or several other serious illnesses which require constant help and attention.
Every year 7,000 homes are sold to pay for care homes costs.
£600 per week is the average cost of a care home or £31,200 over one year!
This year 2011/12 we choose to help both a Local and International Charity organisation with financial support. This year we are helping support St Oswalds Hospice, based in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne where we often keep in touch with our local representative Jayne who has recently taken up a training exercise to Cambodia, our best wishes to her.
Also the International Red Cross receive our regular support, who have massive problems with food, clothing and equipment shortages to the needy where emergencies need the help and resources mentioned most.
