“Care With Confidence: Power of Attorney” Falkirk Zoom Session

December 7, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free

Falkirk and Clackmannanshire Carers Centre has announced their new “Care with Confidence: Power of Attorney” online information sessions for unpaid carers, taking place during October, November and December.

All sessions will take place using Zoom, which allows unpaid family carers to meet online and talk with each other, while learning about the services available to support them in their caring role.

The sessions are informal, and ask the question: “What would you do if the person you care for lost the capacity to make decisions on their own?” Carers will be able to learn more about:

  • incapacity and how this could impact on their caring responsibilities
  • how being granted Power of Attorney could help in their caring role
  • how Solicitors for Older People Scotland (SOPS) can help when applying for Legal Aid to cover or subsidise any associated costs
