Posted on: November 20th, 2021
We are proud to be part of the Alzheimer Society‘s Dementia Friends initiative.

About Dementia Friends
Alzheimer’s Society’s 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.
Whether you attend a face-to-face Information Session or watch the online video, Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends programme to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts. Our team has taken training and continues to learn and make adjustments to how we deliver legal services to help those with the condition.
At Cygnet Law, we want all clients to feel that they are receiving the best possible support, and there are a number of things we can do to help people with dementia, when they seek legal advice.
If you would like further information on how we can help you, please call us on 01642 777680 for a no obligation initial chat with one of our advisors. We have a team of friendly and approachable advisors who are waiting to take your call. They will talk to you about your situation without using legal jargon and they will do their best to make you feel comfortable and at ease. If you don’t want to call us initially you can contact us at a time most convenient to you, anytime of the day or night, through our online enquiry form and we will get back to you as soon as we can to see if we can help.
Cygnet Law’s Elf Day
As new members of the Dementia Friends initiative, the staff at Cygnet Law are eager to start fundraising. Cygnet Law is taking part in the Alzheimer’s society’s Elf Day on the 3rd December.
As highlighted by the Alzheimer’s Society, the Christmas period can be a particularly difficult time for people affected by dementia and also their families. Fundraising plays a vital role in allowing the Alzheimer’s Society to help and support people impacted by Dementia which is why the staff at Cygnet Law are keen to play our part in being active dementia friends!
On Friday 3rd December, staff at Cygnet law will be encouraged to take part in festive games, baking and raffles all in the aim of raising money for the Alzheimer’s society.
If you would like to donate to the Alzheimer’s Society (and we encourage you to do so!) we have set up a Just Giving page in aid of this.
