Expert Opinion“We’re all really excited for the upcoming Later Life conference, which we’re hoping will shed some light on the ways in which planning ahead for the future can make a massive difference for both clients and their families.
“The recent social care reforms have created a lot of discussion, and it’s a topic we’ll be tackling head-on for our audience of other lawyers, finance professionals, care home professionals and a whole host of others involved in the later life sector.
“I’m also looking forward to some more light-hearted topics being discussed as well such as an insightful look into the world of mature cosmetics with our keynote speaker, Tricia Cusden, as well as a session from dating service Vida Consultancy on finding love in later life.
“It promises to be a very interesting, informative and thought-provoking event for everyone attending, and we’re committed to making sure everyone has a great day.” Emma McCann - Partner
