“In order to live a full life you need money. That is where I can possibly help. I used to be a lawyer (20 years ago!) but I retained an interest in welfare law. Now I am retired, I can check you are getting all the benefits you are entitled to, helping you to work out what you can afford to do.
“With experience of working with people in the community with mental health issues, I moved from Fife to Pitlochry. After acting as a Housekeeper for six months, I moved to work in the community with Crossreach, both as a carer and cook at the day-care centre.
“We are sisters who founded our company The Home Straight in 2012. Our work revolves around helping older people and their families navigate through the daunting process of moving and downsizing to a smaller property, sheltered housing, residential care or nursing home.
“I consider it a privilege to have worked in a variety of care settings for the last 25 years in Scotland and overseas: from working with people with learning and physical disabilities, to promoting disability equality in education, and challenging the stigma around mental health.
