Around 40 people attended the event, hosted by Royal Tunbridge Wells Together at the Assembly Hall Theatre, where Katie Hancock, Associate Solicitor in the Private Client team at CooperBurnett, delivered a presentation on the benefits of joining the Tunbridge Wells Dementia Friendly Community and becoming a Dementia Friendly Business.
“The evening was very well received and many people there were very keen to find out more about becoming a Dementia Friendly Business,” Katie explains.
In her role as a Private Client solicitor, specialising in Wills, Powers of Attorney and Probate, Katie frequently acts for clients who have been affected, both directly and indirectly, by dementia.
“Dementia affects so many lives, in so many ways,” says Katie. “It is imperative for everyone to have a better understanding of the condition, regardless of whether they are currently affected by it or not. CooperBurnett sees the importance of this and we are actively committed to making our business more dementia aware and dementia friendly.”
