Hello all, My wife has vascular dementia and is 73 years old and I am her carer (and husband). Today she received a summons to attend court for jury duty but this is impossible as she couldn't comprehend what was going on. You can be excused jury duty by dint of incapacity but you have to provide a letter from your GP stating this and what duration will the incapacity be. I was amazed that a person of 73 would be asked to do jury duty,. as most persons mental capacity decreases with age. I am speaking as an impartial listener to my friends conversations and we are definitely on the downward slope. Thanks for reading this.
