Gotelee Solicitors join Hadleigh Dementia Action Alliance

We are the latest business to join the Hadleigh Dementia Action Alliance aimed at transforming the lives of people living with dementia and their carers.

The alliance, which was established in September 2014, wants to create a dementia friendly community in Hadleigh and has enlisted the support of dozens of businesses.

Kay Baker, a solicitor specialising in private client law at our Hadleigh branch, said: “As we are specialists in elderly client matters including estate planning, lasting powers of attorney and Court of Protection work, it is very important to us that we understand the challenges facing those living with dementia”.

“We want to ensure our approach, our manner and even our offices are dementia friendly and that is why we are proud to join the Hadleigh Dementia Action Alliance and help to make a difference.”

There are currently more than 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and that number is predicted to soar to just over two million by 2051.

She added: “At Gotelee we build relationships for life. You may have relatives who can no longer take care of themselves, or may simply wish to plan ahead. The challenge is to share the right information to clients, their families and their carers that being proactive and taking advice at the earliest opportunity is best, ensuring that our office environment is dementia friendly removes barriers.”

It is planned that staff in the Hadleigh office will take part in a dementia friends information session to increase their understanding of dementia and how it may affect their clients.

The Hadleigh Dementia Action Alliance held its first meeting in September 2014. Since then it has developed an action plan, engaged with local people living with dementia, their families, friends and carers and has raised dementia awareness.

How can we help?
