If you are making decisions about Wills, Powers of Attorney, planning for care or other legal issues that may arise if you or your family are affected by dementia, a qualified legal advisor can help.

Alzheimer’s Research UK has compiled the list below of solicitors and chartered legal executives who have experience of helping people affected by dementia. Many are members of The Association of Lifetime Lawyers or Solicitors for Older People (Scotland-only). They may have dementia-friendly offices, offer home visits, or otherwise be understanding of the particular needs of those affected by dementia.

Inclusion on this list is not a recommendation by Alzheimer’s Research UK. The solicitors and legal professionals on this list have advised us that they have the expertise to assist with the legal requirements of people who are affected by dementia, but we aren’t able to recommend any solicitor or legal professional in particular. This list is also not connected to the National Free Wills Network.
