Two Wills, Trusts and Probate solicitors, Andrew Hitchon and Natalie Aldrich, of Bray & Bray Solicitors recently undertook training to become Dementia Friends Champions.
The training, provided by the Alzheimer’s Society, prepared Andrew and Natalie to help others to understand what living with dementia is like, and taught them how best to provide advice about ways in which people can make a positive difference to the lives of people living with dementia, in their own local communities.
Speaking about the impact that the training had on him, Associate Solicitor Andrew Hitchon says:
“Natalie and I both found this training to be extremely worthwhile. It is essential in our area of law that people with dementia are not only recognised as having dementia, but that others understand how having dementia impacts on their lives. Not only was the training very interesting, but I feel that it has helped me to better appreciate what people with dementia and their families are going through.”
As part of the Wills, Trusts and Probate team at Bray & Bray, Andrew and Natalie both regularly act for people whose family members have mental or physical illnesses in instances where making legal provisions such as a Will, or a Lasting Power of Attorney, is important for the welfare of both them and their families.
