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 provide Free legal advice through our 'Free First Advice' consultations which are on a no obligation bases. This means that you can sit with an expert solicitor at our office in St Helens or access them remotely using the latest methods of communication/technology at no cost to the client.

It doesn't matter how big or small a problem, we can help to resolve it. We employ specialist solicitors in many different areas of law, meaning the client is receiving expert legal advice. You don't have to live locally to take advantage of our legal advice, many of our services can be carried out for clients nationwide.

We work closely with other professionals to provide an 'all round' service catering to our clients needs.

We can offer support and assist clients with the following:

  • Mental Capacity Act 2005
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Court of Protection
  • Care Issues
  • Challenges to care assessments
  • Care Funding
  • Safeguarding
  • Wills
  • Estate and Tax Planning
  • Physical neglect
  • Physical Abuse
  • Family Law
  • General Litigation
  • Statutory Demands
  • Criminal Defence.

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

Dementia is a complex area and our aim is that all our staff should have a greater understanding of the issues surrounding it.
