In this episode, we break down the complexities of the UK care system, from initial assessments to financial considerations with information and insights from Lottie – a free service that helps families and retirees find the UK’s best care homes and retirement living communities.

We’ll also discuss recognising when a loved one needs support and how to approach these sensitive conversations.
