Dementia Awareness Week 2017
Tollers is proud to support Dementia Awareness Week which runs from 14-20th May 2017. This is a National event which promotes a better understanding of what a diagnosis of dementia can mean, how you can still live well with dementia, and the advice and support that can help you do this.
At the heart of this support is Karon Walton, Partner and Head of the Tollers Elderly and Vulnerable Client Unit and Veronica Male, Care Home Abuse and Neglect Specialist Lawyer. Both ladies got involved with the Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Awareness Online Poster Maker The aim is to raise awareness and asks everyone to unite against Dementia. The Alzheimer’s Society goes on to explain that Dementia is set to be the 21st Century’s biggest killer!
