A care home will be offering advice to older people about how to prepare for their and their family’s future.

Haven Residential Care Home, in Wellington Road, Hatch End, will host the community seminar on Tuesday from 2pm.

People will be able to find out more about writing wills and the power of attorney at the talk from Joy Powell of Ridgeways Financial Planning.

The home's activities leader Urvashi Kapur, who organised the event, said: “Nobody likes to think that one day they may need someone else to care for them or make decisions on their behalf.

“But the reality is that it is better to be well informed and prepared should that time ever come.”

Those interested in attending will need to book a place beforehand and can do so by calling 020 8421 5887 or e-mailing Urvashi.Kapur@sanctuary-housing.co.uk
