You may see national and local media coverage and fundraising events in support of this week which has been earmarked nationally to focus on Dementia and encourage people to talk about their fears and problems. It is set to be the biggest killer of the 21st Century!

Dementia affects us all, either directly or indirectly, yet we seem to find it very difficult to talk about, and many feel they face this alone. Those suffering with this condition can feel isolated, confused, fearful and lonely, as can their carers. The week is designed to break that silence and encourage members of the public to talk about the issues surrounding dementia. It seeks to dispel the myth that this is something shameful or that needs to be faced alone.

At Silks, many of us are Dementia Friends: we have been trained in and are committed to handling those members of the public, elderly or otherwise, suffering with signs of dementia such as confusion and memory loss, fear and anxiety, in a sensitive and appropriate manner.

If you are concerned about any legal aspects of dealing with your dementia or that of a loved one, we can advise on issues that may help legally and practically moving forward, such as making wills, lasting powers of attorney and deputyship applications.

It is important to talk to someone about your concerns and to put your affairs in order before it is too late. Please don’t hesitate to book an appointment today with one of our friendly and experienced lawyers, who will deal with your concerns in a friendly and approachable way giving you all the time you need.
