Throughout June, many homes across OSJCT are running helpful advice sessions to provide you with guidance around Paying for Care. We have invited SOLLA accredited Later Life Advisers to come and talk to those who are looking into care for a loved one.

The Order of St John Care Trust aims and encourages all our residents to engage in some impartial financial advice from SOLLA (Society of later life advisers) prior to moving into one of our 72 care homes. We have found that a vast amount of people have received little or no financial advice so we have decided to do something to raise awareness of the options available to people in later life.

We are running an event at The Lakes Care Centre in South Cerney to offer the chance to come along, have a drink and hopefully leave more knowledgeable about their options. We will have talks on the night from Owain Wright of Care Funding Guidance, Heledd Wyn of Gregg Latchams Solicitors and a member of SOLLA Byron Williams. The event is from 7-9pm on Tuesday 26th June and everyone is welcome.
