DEMENTIA FRIENDLY BUSINESS!
Carolina Estate Counsel just competed the course requirements to certify us as a “Dementia Friendly Business”. This initiative came about through the 2015 White House Conference on Aging and offered two basic points for businesses to follow:
- Commitment: We have committed to become a Dementia Friendly business based on the training we received. An example would be our policy to meet families in their home or senior living community, being respectful, patient and understanding to the client and family. Whenever possible, involving the Dementia client in the decision process.
- Training: We will continue to receive “best practices” training on our interactions with clients and families seeking legal advice for those facing cognitive decline.
It is our hope that we will be in a better position to understand and assist families with the many forms of Dementia.
Carolina Estate Counsel offers FREE consultations and will come to you….. your home, senior living community, hospital room, financial advisors office, etc. You can arrange a meeting by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
