Dementia Awareness Week

August 2017 - Issue 8

In May, Prettys ran a programme of free events during the Alzheimer’s Society National Dementia Awareness Week to help people understand how they should prepare for growing older.

On 16 May, the firm ran an “Ageing with Optimism” information session on how to prepare your affairs, understand your rights on care and capacity, how to live well with dementia and how to choose a good nursing home. Guests speakers included Cllr Roger Fern, Mayor of Ipswich, financial planner Andrew Duley, life coach and social worker Christine Whiting, Jacqui Martin from Cardinal Healthcare and Kim Bilner, who provided health and fitness advice.

Nigel George from Prettys’ Estate team, who led the event, commented; “While we can’t stop growing older, we can do a lot to control how we grow older. We hope that our programme of events demonstrate how planning for both the financial and wellbeing aspects can help create a more positive ageing experience.”
