< Back to care journey

Powers of attorney and deputyships:  The resident's move from their own home to residential care is often unplanned. It may come following a fall and a hospital admission or an incident which discloses that independent living is no longer safe. Decisions need to be made and relatives suddenly realise they have no power to make them. They are running to catch up right from the outset.

Wrigleys experienced service can put relatives in control by obtaining the right representative power as soon as possible.

The following is just incidental notes

Living independently and being included in the community
