Dealing with Dementia

National law firm Stone King has joined forces with research charity BRACE for a webinar looking at how to support people with dementia.

The informative webinar ties in with Stone King’s ethos of understanding our clients’ needs and ensuring they are at the heart of what we do, with our lawyers able to help on a wide range of issues including financial matters, trusts and estates and children issues.

BRACE is an independent charity committed to defeating dementia through scientific research. It funds world class clinical and laboratory research into Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia to find better treatments, achieve earlier diagnosis and one day, a cure.

In this webinar Dr James Selwood will discuss the four most common types of dementia: Alzheimer’s, vascular, Lewy body and frontotemporal. There will be some insight into how we make a diagnosis. Most importantly, James will explain how the different types of dementia affect patients and what we can all do to help.

Kathryn Layzell will be sharing some legal tips for carers around putting in place arrangements for making decisions for others who lack capacity. Kathryn will also look at how attorneys can still carry out their role during the current climate whilst adhering to social distancing.
