We spend our lives making plans, but thinking about our future care needs is something many of us don’t like to dwell on. Putting care plans in place before the point at which we need them is really important though.

In this episode of Rewirement Angellica meets Feyi, a ‘Sandwich Generation’ mum whose experiences caring for her mother who has dementia inspired her to start a company that not only supports her family and others in a similar position, but could help provide for her in later in life.

Next we meet newlyweds Heather and Alan, who fell in love in their 70s after meeting on an assisted walking holiday. They share their story of how Alan’s sight loss has meant adapting to a different way of life, and offer tips on how to stay active and independent in the face of challenges.

Angellica is also joined by Andrew Parfery, CEO & co-founder of Care Sourcer, and Legal & General’s Sam Roberts. They share their thoughts on planning ahead – preparing for the worst but hoping for the best – as well as resources for those with care needs and their carers. If you’re worried about the financial side of planning for care in retirement, there are also sound suggestions from Sam on where you can find support.
