Contact your nearest Coles Miller office for more help - our solicitors can visit you at home or in hospital.

What Is A Dementia Friendly Solicitor?

Solicitors who are accredited as Dementia Friendly have undergone special training by the Alzheimer’s Society.

This training gives us a greater understanding on how dementia affects people, how they think, how it affects their ability to take decisions and communicate - and what can be done to help them.

Dementia is not an inevitable or natural part of ageing. It is a form of brain disease.

But it is possible to live with dementia - and this is where we can help. Our specialist solicitors can suggest ways to make life easier for people with dementia.

We are experts in this area of the law - but more than that, we are friendly, sympathetic and patient. We won’t baffle you with legal jargon.
