  1. Expert Q&A: Living well as a carer - Thurs 29 August, 3-4pm

    As a carer for a person living with dementia, the needs of the person you care for will often come before your own. You may experience a range of difficult emotions and you may not have the time to do all the things you need to do. Caring can have a big impact on both your mental and physical health, as well as your overall wellbeing.

    Angelo, our Knowledge Officer (Wellbeing) is our expert on this topic. He will be here to answer your questions on Thursday 29 August between 3-4pm.

    You can either post questions >here< or email them to us at talkingpoint@alzheimers.org.uk and we'll answer as many as we can on the day.

    What a wonderful home Dhiren was in. He will be missed as they obviously see their residents as one big family and how lovely that they have contacted you

    Much support

    I just wanted to send my sincere condolences to you and your family. I have also lit a virtual candle.

    Your posts of your husband smiles have really stood out.

    Now it's time to take care of you.

    Thinking of you Sylvia.

    You are a special lady - though I think I know you won't agree, as you see yourself as someone who just did what was right for Dhiren. Loving and knowing him so well, you excelled at just doing what was right for Dhiren.

    A huge gap will now be in your life, so please look after you now as you are much loved xx

    Dear Sylvia, I'm so sorry. Like many who follow this thread (and your blogg), you and Dhiren feel a part of my life and your love and respect for Dhiren just shines ever day. This is a breath of fresh air. The last few weeks have been so difficult and I hope both you and Paul find comfort and kindness in the coming days and months.
    Love Craig x

    ...there is no forgiveness necessary, Sylvia. You are allowed to be down, cross ,upset, mixed up, lost and most of all tired. You have been through such a lot especially over this last month or so and emotionally and physically your entire system has been stressed beyond limits. Give yourself time to absorb everything that has happened and to accept that this is the start of a new stage in your life.
    Don't respond, don't feel guilty, just feel our love and support for you and yours during this sad and difficult time.

    No response necessary or expected Sylvia.
    So many times, you have given us your support and your strength.
    Now is the time for you to give it to yourself.
    You can let the tears flow and just take time to grieve.
    You have a massive adjustment to make, your life has changed and so very quickly too.
    Please be kind to yourself and patient too.
    love and compassion. xxx

    Dear Sylvia, there is no need to ask forgiveness. You must be totally overwhelmed by everything, you need peace and time to work through it all and gather strength for the days ahead.

    I hope you are managing sleep, rest, to help you through this extremely difficult time.

    Ever thinking of you, with love
    Loo xxx
