In the last of our seminar series, we will be looking at the challenges faced by vulnerable individuals and their families/loved ones.

Vulnerability can be caused by mental illness, disability, old age, dementia, addiction or even grief. In addition to being vulnerable to financial abuse, such individuals can suffer from cognitive impairment and loss of mental capacity, rendering them unable to make valid decisions.

This seminar will cover:

  • Planning for and dealing with vulnerability and decline/loss of mental capacity
  • Knowing how to recognise and respond to these issues; and
  • What to do when the planning is not in place or has gone wrong.
