Foys Solicitors: Defending loved ones with dementia

Last week was Dementia Action Week. With Alzheimer’s Society encouraging the public to get involved and support people with dementia, it was the perfect time to raise awareness about what it means to actually live with dementia.

In the UK, there are currently 850,000 people with dementia, and numbers are expected to rise to over 1 million by 2025. As the figures increase, the UK Government needs to start thinking about cost of future dementia care.

When it comes to dementia, thinking about future care is important. There are many options available – from moving into a care home to receiving care in your own home – and so it’s important to think about each choice carefully before making a decision that’s right for you.

Whether you’re personally dealing with dementia or someone you love has been affected by it, knowing that you’re not alone and that can you get the help you need from solicitors who care, can make a big difference.
