Planning ahead - Financial planning and support - Strategies to manage finances

Without giving up control of your finances, it is a good idea to have a trusted person who can help with some financial tasks, such as balancing your cheque book and making sure to remind you when a bill needs to be paid. It will be an individual decision however on how much or little control you want over your finances. Make sure to get your legal documentation in place. See the Power of Attorney section of the website for more information.
