Several members of the Wills, Trust & Probate team at Verisona Law have become Dementia Friends following a training session kindly provided by Bluebird Care, a provider of home care services across the UK.
Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society initiative that enables people to learn about dementia, so that they can better serve the local community. The Society founded the programme because many people affected by dementia feel that society fails to understand the condition. Dementia Friends helps by raising awareness and understanding, so that people living with dementia can continue to enjoy life without feeling isolated.
Hayley Beeching, Head of Wills, Probate & Trusts at Verisona Law said: “Our team frequently come into contact with those affected by dementia and whilst we always treat our clients with care and respect, the training provided by Dementia Friends has given us more of an insight into the condition and we are now able to tailor our approach to our clients and their family members.”
