We have an ageing population who are suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia.
It remains important that wills are regularly reviewed and updated. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s it is important that you obtain specialist advice as soon as possible in relation to your will, the execution of a Lasting Power of Attorney and wider legal and financial affairs. In cases such as this it is always wise to bear in mind that solicitors are experts in the law – not psychiatric medicine. The golden rule prescribes that, particularly with elderly testators or those suffering from a serious illness, that the will changes should be verified by a medical practitioner.
