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.

    Has anyone used the ‘Advocacy Project’ and if so is there a fee for this?
    The reason I ask is why do they ask for details of my wife’s Income etc?

    hi @Worriedsick
    I don't know anything about that initiative
    but having done an internet search, the website says 'We offer free ....' so not sure why they are asking for onfo on finances .... unless it's relevant to the particular enquiry/issue you are raising with them

    I also did a search, generally it came up with initiatives related to a specific geographical area.
    I felt that the 'we offer free' could be means tested.
    Why not ask the specific Advocacy Project for information?
