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.

    I would advise getting help to fill in the form.Where I live we have a Welfare Rights unit run by the Council,who will send someone out to help with benefits claims.If your area don't offer this then I believe CAB will help.
    It is not so much that the form is complicated,but sometimes you have to think a bit outside the box.I don't have dementia( I am a carer for OH)I am visually impaired and I recently claimed successfully for ESA in the support group.Not sure I would have got it without help.For instance questions such as ,Can you get an item from the shelf? I would have just ticked yes,but the lady who came out made me realise that although I can physically do that,without help,I may not be able to see the item,or distinguish it from similar items if there were any.Also always think of your worst day when filling in the form,not your best.
