Law For Dementia Carers Webinar with Age Scotland

  Together in Dementia Everyday (TIDE)  and Age Scotland would like to invite carers of people with dementia to join a webinar on: Law 4 Dementia Carers: Coming out of Covid? which is being held on Friday 14th August from 4.00 to 5.30 p.m. The aim of the webinar is to help carers of people living with dementia to understand their legal rights and what the law might mean for them as lockdown (potentially) comes to an end. This is a time of change and uncertainty for carers. There are many questions to be answered and explanations to be provided about carers’ rights and entitlements – and those of the person they care for - in a wide range of situations. From knowing when and how care home visiting might resume to understanding what happens if you have to sell your house, what support you might be entitled to on a day to day basis and what happens if a second wave occurs and we go back into lockdown, carers need to be clear about what the law in Scotland says and the impact it could have on them. This webinar is for carers of people living with dementia and is based on the issues and questions that carers raise from their day to day experiences. It will feature an expert panel with representatives from TiDE, Age Scotland’s Information and Advice, About Dementia and Dementia Training teams and the legal profession in Scotland. The panel will give brief presentations on different aspects of carers’ rights in post-Covid Scotland (or nearly post-Covid Scotland) and who will take and answer your questions. Questions can be submitted in advance when you book your place (we will send you an email when you register and we would strongly encourage you to submit questions in advance this way) or on the day through the chat box. It is likely that we will not get round to addressing all the questions raised during the webinar, so we will be doing extensive follow up of various kinds with participants after the session. We do hope that you can join us and want to hear your questions and comments. A week before the webinar, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
