We had a talk from Maggie Bennett about caring for people with dementia, speakers from GD Legal Services talked about the importance of having a Lasting Power of Attorney and how this protects both carers and the cared for person. Helen from IWC answered a range of financial questions and we had a demonstration from Telecare and Carers IW Manual Handling trainers.
