What is a Court of Protection Order?
If a family member or close friend loses ability to make decisions for themselves, perhaps because of dementia, a serious illness or a brain injury, the Court of Protection may be required to intervene.
When a loved one is diagnosed with Dementia, it can be a stressful and uncertain time.
There are a lot of misconceptions about Dementia, but ultimately, it affects a person ability to remember certain things, as well as affecting their communication.
Taking care of someone who is diagnosed with a disease such as Dementia or Alzheimer’s can be difficult, but you will always have the knowledge that they are being taken care of properly. On top of care needs there are other things to be taken into consideration, such as changing or updating their Will, or perhaps there have been disputes regarding how their finances will be managed.
Within my role, I deal with various clients who need assistance when it comes to their loved one’s diagnosis of Dementia. I act as a professional deputy for families where there have been legal disagreements.
It is crucial that our team understand Dementia as a condition and the way in which it impacts people’s lives, relationships, and communication abilities.
Having a sound understanding of the condition and acknowledging that it affects everybody differently enables us to be skilled in communicating with those with a Dementia diagnosis to enable them to feel as involved as possible in the decisions being made.
We consider things such as what the best time of day is to meet, where to meet, the length of sentences we use, tone and pitch of speech and whether any communication aids or personal support are necessary.
