Supporting and caring for a loved one with the complex combination of dementia and cancer can be extremely challenging. We are pleased to be having our second expert Q&A on dementia and cancer, hosted by Lorraine Burgess, a Macmillan Dementia Nurse Consultant at the Christie Hospital in Manchester, who supports people affected by both conditions and their families. Lorraine’s unique role involves working alongside cancer specialists and nursing staff helping them to understand the needs of those with dementia and co-existing cancer; working in the community with health professionals in complex cases involving cancer and dementia; and supporting people with dementia and cancer and/or their family with one-to-one help as well as post-diagnostic education, advice on future planning and emotional support. Lorraine will be answering your questions about dealing with dementia and cancer on Thursday 30th May between 3-4pm. If you can’t make it, feel free to post your question on this thread, or if you prefer you can send your question to email@example.com and we’ll be happy to ask on your behalf. We hope to see you here!
