Blandy & Blandy supporting this year’s Dementia Awareness Week

Reading-based solicitors firm Blandy & Blandy will proudly be supporting this year’s Dementia Awareness Week, which begins on May 17.

In partnership with Reading Dementia Action Alliance and the Alzheimer’s Society the firm will be running free drop-in sessions providing information on matters including writing a will and Lasting Power of Attorney. The sessions will take place  May 18 – 22, 1.00 – 2.00pm at Blandy & Blandy’s One Friar Street office.

Individuals and their families are welcome to visit at their convenience to find out more from the firm’s Private Client team, top ranked in both The Legal 500 and Chambers UK directories and described by the latter as ‘one of the strongest private client teams in the South of England.’ Blandy & Blandy has advised generations of clients on all aspects of their personal, family and business lives for nearly 300 years.

Caroline Casagranda, Partner in the Private Client team, said: “Blandy & Blandy is proud to support the Alzheimer Society’s Dementia Friends campaign with the Reading Dementia Action Alliance. Giving consideration to your or your loved ones futures is not always easy but writing a will, a Lasting Power of Attorney and other similar steps can help to make matters much easier for all involved and protect your family’s interests.”
