Event Details

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 Families in Global Transition UK at Signature's new Care and Nursing Home, Cliveden Manor, in Marlow for an overview of how to best prepare for caring at a distance.

FIGT is the premier advocate and cross-cultural educational resource for families, organisations and service providers and has built its global community by bringing together corporate, diplomatic, academic, the arts, military, missionary and NGO sectors to share and develop leading edge research and concepts that address international relocation issues.
