Astle Paterson take part in a face-to-face Dementia Friends session

Sarah Nash, Solicitor and Head of Astle Paterson’s Wills and Probate Department discusses Astle Paterson’s aim to assist people living with dementia in Burton upon Trent and the surrounding area.

Sarah said “Dementia is caused by a number of diseases that affect the brain.   The most common is Alzheimer’s but diseases also include vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies and Pick’s disease.

Our very own Helen Vorley and Maria Pusey have recently attended a face-to-face Dementia Friends session which was organised by East Staffordshire Borough Council and delivered by the Alzheimer’s Society.

The Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.”

Sarah concluded “Helen and Maria learned a lot more about what it’s like to live with dementia and the small ways in which we can help from being more patient, to volunteering, to campaigning for change. The aim of the Dementia Friends programme is to create communities in which people living with dementia feel more understood and included.

At Astle Paterson we continue to seek to support those who are living with dementia in the local community.”
