Alzheimer Scotland is the leading dementia organisation in Scotland.

 

We need to raise £15,000 every single day to provide vital support for people with dementia those who care for them across the country, from Shetland to Stranraer.

Planning your Will

Planning your Will

Making a Will isn't complicated but it will help if you do a bit of planning before you speak to a solicitor.  You can use the sections in our will planning leaflet to jot down information about your assets and your wishes before you meet with your solicitor.  He or she will probably ask for more information, but it will help you think about and record some key information first.

Download our Planning your Will leaflet.

Other wishes

You can add instructions in your Will about what sort of funeral you want or if you want to donate your organs or donate tissue for medical research.  However, you should also discuss these wishes with your family in case there is any delay in locating your Will.  You may also need to fill in a form or register your wishes for organ or tissue donation.
