Our solicitors and support staff have received dementia training from Ipswich Mayor, Roger Fern.
Roger is a Volunteer for Ipswich Dementia Action Alliance and is Dementia Champion for the charity. He has a passion for involving as many Ipswich businesses committed to being dementia friends.
Our team of solicitors and support staff gave up their lunch hour to have some dementia training which included activities and games. The training took an hour and covered the essential points that would assist a dementia client and their family. The staff that took part signed a commitment card to become dementia friends.
Peter Crix, head of the Wills and Probate team says:
“Our solicitors are committed to supporting those living with dementia and their families so it is beneficial for all staff to have some training. Our staff can do little things and make a big difference. We pride ourselves on being a local firm and we enjoy doing our bit of the community”.
Roger Fern says:
“Dementia affects so many of us directly or indirectly, so to have as many local services that are sympathetic and supportive of those living with dementia, really does make a big difference to them and their families. As a trained dementia champion, I have the ambition to assist in making Ipswich a dementia friendly town and change the way people think, act and talk about dementia.
Roger will further train our satellite offices who couldn’t attend the lunch at the Ipswich office.
Our Hadleigh office became part of the Hadleigh Dementia Action Alliance at the end of last year.
