Steeles Law Diss office refresh their Dementia training

Staff at Steeles Law's Diss office has recently refreshed their training with a Dementia Friends training session, with the aim of offering a more supportive and inclusive service to the local community.

Steeles Law Private Client team updated their Dementia training, which was organised by the Diss Business Forum. The session gave staff an in-depth understanding of what dementia is and how it can affect anybody.  By undertaking this unique training, participants could understand more about what living with dementia is like, how it also affects families and most importantly, how to turn their understanding into action.

As a local solicitor’s firm, we are committed to servicing our local community.  Through this opportunity to learn more about dementia, a condition that affects many of us and our families, we have gained the necessary tools to better assist all who use our services.

Being a dementia friend has given me a better understanding of the challenges faced by those with dementia and their carers, and the ability to emphasis and provide effective help to them’ said Karen Bacon, Head of Wills, Trusts and Tax team.
