THW actively support Dementia Action Week

We will be actively participating in Dementia Action Week running from 20th to 26th May 2019.


A number of our solicitors are Dementia Friends - they have had training through the Alzheimer’s Society Initiative to be more aware of the disease and receptive to dealing with it as well as raising awareness and starting conversations about dementia.

To support the week, Thomson Hayton Winkley will be offering a free drop in service in our Kendal and Windermere offices for people to discuss legal concerns with one of our Dementia Friend solicitors.

Our specialist solicitors, Nicola Steadman, Sarah Playforth and Kathryn Hughes, will be available between 10am – 12pm on Wednesday 22nd May at our Kendal Office, to discuss legal requirements for planning for the future and lasting powers of attorney, and Krystal Garnett will be available at our Windermere office between 2-4pm on the same day.

Nicola Steadman, one of our Kendal Solicitors and a Dementia Friend says:

“Becoming unable to manage your affairs can happen at any stage in life and can affect anyone making the simplest of things and the more important decisions difficult and stressful, but in some cases impossible. Being a “Dementia Friend” has given me a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by people with the disease and highlighted the importance for people living with dementia to plan for the future with lasting powers of attorney. They are empowered to make the choices they would like, for their future, before it becomes too late.”
