Busting Myths Of Dementia – Myth 5

Reasons to choose Wilson Browne

In support of dementia action week this week Vicki Pearce from our Court of Protection team highlights some of the myths about #Dementia  

Myth 5 : “You cannot prepare for dementia”

There are several studies to suggest that you can stave off or slow down dementia such as:

  • Living a healthy lifestyle
  • Keeping your brain active by doing crosswords and keeping your brain stimulated
  • Treating depression
  • Remaining social and not lonely or isolated
  • Eating a healthy balanced diet and maintaining a healthy weight
  • Exercising regularly
  • Keeping alcohol to a minimum

You can easily plan for your future by:

  • Making a Power of Attorney
  • Making an Advance Directive about your treatment wishes
  • Setting up a trust
  • Make a Will

The issues of caring for a loved one, acting for someone who has lost capacity or challenging care funding or care home funding arrangements is complex.
