Dementia-Friendly ProfessionalTM (Introductory Program)

Protect your clients, protect your practice.

One in four persons over the age of 80 will experience some degree of cognitive change impacting their financial management capacity and decision-making abilities.  As a trusted advisor, balancing advocacy and privacy is a commitment to client service excellence and sound business practices that will protect your clients and your practice.

The Dementia Friendly Professional (DFPTM) introductory program is your starting point to meeting not only new regulatory requirements, but a growing expectation among aging clients to advocate and prolong their participation in financial matters, without compromising their or their loved ones’ long term security.  The DFP gives you the knowledge, tools and confidence to do so.
