Head of Pagan Osborne’s Lateryears, comments:
According to the National Records of Scotland, our population is set to rocket and experts predict that every three people of working age will have to support two dependents from the growing ranks of pensioners and children.
The consequences for us all are quite phenomenal to contemplate. Sometimes taking the pragmatic approach is the best and putting affairs in order can go a long way to peace of mind. If you have elderly parents, talk to them about future care options, Powers of Attorney and Wills. It can protect you all from needless heartache later on.”
