Funding can be a major headache for families when the time comes for a loved one to move into a care home to find extra support.

The options available to people will be clearly explained in a presentation at Lilac Lodge care home, in Gorleston Road, Oulton Broad, from 10.30am to noon on Friday, May 26.

Nicky Cave, managing director of Eldercare Solutions, one of the UK's leading sources of independent financial advice for people looking at how to meet long-term care costs, will explain how the care funding system works and explore what state support might be available.

She will offer advice about an option that might prevent money running out while, ideally, protecting an inheritance for beneficiaries.

The presentation will take place during the Kingsley Healthcare run home's third monthly dementia drop-in event intended to provide a welcome opportunity for people living with dementia and their carers to meet up for a chat over cakes and hot and cold drinks.

Home manager Zena Stotter said: 'We know there are increasing numbers of carers supporting people living with dementia in the community.

'However, our invitation goes out equally to carers looking after people with any other disability. It is our way of saying, 'if you care, we care'.'
