Plan with Care is a care and wellbeing planning company working with older people, their families, and representatives to improve their wellbeing.

Our Purpose

We want you to have the best care and life experience whatever your circumstance. We work so you can be confident that your choices are underpinned by solid financial foundations. We support you to live your life to the full, whatever your situation, and particularly if you are living with dementia.

Our Story

Chris and Nathan founded Plan with Care to make a difference to the care and finance sectors. Chris' background is over a decade leading quality improvement in care. Nathan has spent the past 17 years improving access to good quality financial planning.

They've been friends for most of that time, and realised that people weren't easily able to get high quality support to create a sustainable plan for wellbeing in later life.

"We want people to be getting the best support they can, so they can live their lives to the full. That's why we've set up Plan with Care."
