Jodie Wielgus, Partner in our Private Client department, has featured on SheerLuxe giving her professional opinion on putting elderly parents in full-time care, which can be a hugely emotional and financially difficult time for families.

Speaking to the publication, alongside Shaleeza Hasham, Head of Hospitality and Communications at care home group CHD Living and Emma Hammond, financial planner at Charles Stanley, Jodie commented that:

“It is important to suggest the different care options to your parents rather than dictate your own opinions and preferences. Talk about home helps, care homes, live-in care and home care in an unbiased way, but with the focus being on the best option for your parents’ quality of life. Being too opinionated could make your parents think that their feelings don’t matter but good care is all about what matters to the person being cared for. Approaching the subject with respect is so important and is more likely to result in a positive outcome.

“The more you know about what your parents want, the more likely their long-term care plans will be the best for them and the rest of the family.”
