Help When You Need It Most
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.

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.
