Dealing with a dementia diagnosis

Dealing with a dementia diagnosis

With more than 55 million people having dementia worldwide, the importance of knowing what to do following a diagnosis is fundamental.

Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) has recently created a video to share advice on steps to take following a diagnosis. 

This provides clear advice on key practical steps to take regarding your finances, your wishes, and your future care; and although in some cases might lead to difficult conversations with family members and loved ones, in many cases it will help to reduce distress and difficulties later on at a time when you may no longer be able to take decisions for yourself. 

Seeking specialist professional advice early on is recommended to get the appropriate steps put in place and/or updated, and to ensure that you, your family, and your assets are protected.
