Capacity and the Individual
Following the success of our 2019 conference, Tollers are pleased to invite you to attend our 2020 conference: Capacity and the Individual.
This conference is aimed at professionals working with the elderly and/or vulnerable. It will provide a particular focus on the individuals we all work to support, featuring case studies and very special guest speakers who wish to share their first-hand experiences. The aim of this upcoming conference is to remind us all that we are dealing with unique individuals and we should all have a better understanding of what it means to truly put the person first, in order to provide those people with the best service possible.
The conference will be chaired by Tonina Ashby – Senior Associate and Head of Tollers Elderly and Vulnerable client unit. Tollers are delighted to announce that Michael Culver, Chairman of Solicitors for the Elderly and Partner at Bolt Burdon Solicitors, will be speaking at the conference about the incapacity crisis facing the nation and the importance of making Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Some of the speakers on the day will be:
Andrew Broughton – Senior Social Worker in Dementia and Huntington’s disease Services and Rita Norman, Social Worker specialising in working with people living with complex Dementia – St Andrew’s Healthcare, who will be discussing capacity assessments and their challenges through case studies.
