Set to be the 21st Century’s biggest killer, Dementia will touch each and every one of us at some point.
Receiving a diagnosis of dementia, or living with someone who has been diagnosed, can be difficult, scary and confusing.
The 14th to 20th May is Dementia Awareness Week – a week where people can unite in the fight against dementia.
Atherton Godfrey Solicitors will be playing their part by hosting a drop-in open day from 10am to 3pm on Wednesday 17 May at their office at 8 Hall Gate, Doncaster. Come along and find out more about living with dementia and help raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society at the same time. No appointment needed – just pop in when you can.
Specialist Wills and Probate solicitor, and Dementia Friends Champion, Vicky Sladdin will be on hand with FREE legal advice on protecting property, Lasting Powers of Attorney and planning for the future. Also on hand will be Citizens Advice Bureau with information on benefits and finances. Confidential meeting rooms are available if needed.
Something not to be missed is the Dementia Friends Information session that will be held between 12.30pm and 1.30pm. This information helps give a better understanding of dementia and gives you the chance to turn that understanding into action. You can also find out how you can become a Dementia Friend.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day – any donations received will go to the Alzheimer’s Society.
