FIGT (UK) - Caring at a Distance
7th November 2014
FIGT UK Networking Event
in association with TimeFinders Senior Life Specialists
Caring at a Distance
Signature, Cliveden Manor , 210 Little Marlow Road, Marlow, Bucks SL7 1HX
As life expectancy increases, the provision of elder care is becoming more important in the UK and is moving up the agenda in all sectors. When you live and work abroad, caring from a distance and ensuring that a parent or relative back in the UK can manage as they become older and frail in health can be difficult and worrying. Yet the most recent research from the relocation industry highlights that company overseas assignment policies do not include provision for elder care support in the home country. (Global Mobility Trends Survey - Brookfield 2014)
Thankfully there are a number of things that expats can do. Please join Signature and Families in Global Transition UK for an overview of how to best prepare for caring at a distance.
