Financial and legal affairs

There are many financial and legal questions that people with dementia and their carers will have to consider. It is important for a person with dementia to organise their financial and legal affairs while they are still able to do so. A person with dementia may want a friend or family member to help them.

There is information on benefits, appointeeship, banking, joint accounts, trusts and wills in factsheet 467, Financial and legal affairs, and in more detail in Living with dementia booklet 1501, Managing your money.
