Help When You Need It Most

North & South - - Public Trust Promotion -

You never know what’s around the cor­ner. When life is tick­ing along just fine, it’s hu­man na­ture not to want to spend time think­ing about how your cir­cum­stances might sud­denly change, and how you’d cope if they do. It’s also nat­u­ral to want to keep your in­de­pen­dence.

Whether you need some short-term sup­port and ad­vice, or on­go­ing as­sis­tance to share the load, Per­sonal As­sist can help. Man­ag­ing fi­nan­cial and prop­erty mat­ters by your­self can be chal­leng­ing. Maybe your part­ner used to do it, and they’re no longer here.

You might be feel­ing the strain of car­ing for elderly par­ents no longer able to man­age on their own. Per­haps you’re look­ing for some in­de­pen­dent pro­fes­sional ad­vice, or just want to free up some time so you can get on with do­ing the things you re­ally en­joy in life. With Per­sonal As­sist, a ded­i­cated Pub­lic Trust Ad­viser is on hand to do as much or as lit­tle as you need – giv­ing you that ex­tra peace of mind with­out the stress.

Vanita and Shamin­dra

“I run my own busi­ness, Sham runs his own busi­ness. We also have other ac­tiv­i­ties out­side of that as well... Life’s got­ten so busy, so much harder to deal with, even though we have all this tech­nol­ogy and th­ese won­der­ful things; it’s just got­ten busier. Maybe once our chil­dren get a bit older and they’re more in­de­pen­dent.” – Vanita “It hasn’t been dis­cussed but if you look at our cul­tural back­ground, it’s ex­pected that you would take care of your par­ents… be there for your par­ents. You would take care of them right to the end.” – Vanita

“That would be some­thing I’d have to man up and just do. It’ll be say­ing thank you for look­ing after me when I was a young kid.” – Shamin­dra “I think they still need to feel as if they have their own life and they can do their own things, have their own pri­vacy, and we are there to sup­port them if they need any­thing ex­tra.” – Shamin­dra

* Per­sonal As­sist can help you bal­ance fam­ily com­mit­ments with the pres­sures of daily life. A Pub­lic Trust Ad­viser can make sure your fi­nances are struc­tured to meet your needs and liv­ing costs, in­clud­ing mort­gages and loans – whether it’s short- term sup­port to keep things tick­ing over while you’re on hol­i­day, man­ag­ing a prop­erty, or sim­ply han­dling an­nual tax re­turns.

In their later years, par­ents of­ten want to stay as in­de­pen­dent as pos­si­ble, with­out be­ing a bur­den on their chil­dren. With Per­sonal As­sist, a ded­i­cated ad­viser can step in and help with as much or as lit­tle as needed, pro­vid­ing re­as­sur­ance that their fi­nan­cial and prop­erty af­fairs are in or­der.

It’s not easy jug­gling a young fam­ily with age­ing par­ents who in­creas­ingly rely on your sup­port. Per­sonal As­sist is de­signed to re­as­sure you that their fi­nan­cial and prop­erty mat­ters are in or­der.
