All of our office are now fully trained Dementia Friends!
Our very own Wills & Probate Solicitor Nosheen Bukhari has been travelling across the Manak offices at Gravesend, Sevenoaks and Orpington giving enlightening training sessions on the effects of dementia and how we can all help those affected. These sessions took place over the past few weeks and have given us all ideas into how we can help people with dementia and make life easier for them.
Dementia Friends is an initiative created by the Alzheimer’s Society to raise the awareness of dementia and the ways that we can help in our own way. By learning about dementia, we can have a bigger impact on those affected and provide help and understanding to clients.
Nosheen is a Dementia Friends Champion, which is a volunteer that encourages others to make a difference to those living with dementia. Nosheen took the time to provide a training session to each of our offices and provide us with a bite of lunch as well! Through these training sessions, we learnt how to aid those living with dementia and what to do if one of our clients may have it.
Everyone who attended received a Dementia Friends badge, that you may see when you have a meeting with one of our solicitors! These badges represent that we are helping to build dementia-friendly communities and encouraging the conversation about dementia.
