Kate Baxter, Yvonne Birks, Emily Heavey

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This study explored existing research and current practice regarding independent financial advice about funding social care in older age.

We found that regulated financial advice can produce greater financial security and feelings of empowerment in those using it. Click here to read more or watch our two-minute film on who to talk to about meeting the costs of care.

We also found gaps in adult social care organisations' knowledge about the financial sector, and vice versa, but a shared language and common aims.
