A Path Forward: The Future of Estate Planning and Dementia-friendly Practices
Presently, there are 85,000 people living with dementia in B.C., and in the next 20 years we expect this number to double. The time is now to forge a new way forward by ensuring our wills & estates practices are dementia-friendly.
This session explores how dementia impacts client interactions, identifies key legal issues, and draws on lived experiences of dementia, to put knowledge into practice and give lawyers the tools and resources to build a dementia-friendly practice.
