Dementia impacts not only the individual who is living with dementia but also their carers, family, friends, and society. It can impact physically, psychologically, socially, economically and financially and the effect can be profound. Whilst many carers find it rewarding, it also requires time, patience and flexibility and a level of understanding.
The end of a marriage is one of life’s most stressful events, it can create all kinds of emotions and hostilities and lead to people behaving in entirely uncharacteristic ways. It involves the things that are most important in life, your children, your finances, sometimes your relationships with family and friends and your independence.
Life events, even happy ones such as a marriage or the birth of a child, create a financial burden and this can have a huge impact not only on our financial well-being but our well-being more broadly. Having proper financial plans in place can help to ease the stress of these situations for you and your loved ones as you navigate life.
