Dementia Support Services

Dementia Support Services

A diagnosis of dementia can be life changing; not only for the emotional impact on the recipient and their loved ones, but also for the future life they will lead.

There is so much to be considered; such as support from specialist dementia organisations, advanced care planning, and future financial provisions.  Most often, a family member is burdened with the difficult task of managing this process and we know how stressful, time consuming, and emotionally draining this can be. PGS Law’s expert team of North East solicitors can help guide and support you from day one to ensure that you and your family have peace of mind that the wishes and future needs of the person suffering from dementia will be adequately planned for.
