1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

We often see clients who are diagnosed with Dementia or have family members with a diagnosis of dementia. We aim to provide in a professional, caring and understanding manner the advice that is required according to the circumstances of each individual case. Members of our private client team have specialist knowledge in dealing with matters affecting older clients. Many are members of specialist groups such as Solicitors for the Elderly and The Society of Trust and Estate practitioners.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Making sure all of the firm is dementia aware not just those in the private client department. Our older listed building does make access difficult for some via our front entrance but we are able to offer alternative wheelchair access as well as home visits.
