1. Q&A: Looking after yourself as a carer - Friday 25 January, 3-4pm

    As a carer for a person living with dementia, the needs of that person will often come before your own, and this can mean that you don't always look after yourself.

    However, it's important for both you and the person you care for. But how do you do that properly?

    Our next expert Q&A will be on looking after yourself as a carer. It will be hosted by Angelo from our Knowledge Services team, who focuses on wellbeing. He'll be answering your questions on Friday 25 January 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.

    Hi,

    Does anybody have experience of using these and able to give me feedback on their reliability, comfort and usability.

    I am an occupational therapist and thinking of ordering one for a client so this info would be helpful. Cost is not an issue.

    I would be concerned about their medium/long term reliability given the environment they are in.
    I've searched for independent testing with no success.
    Can the supplier/manufacturer provide any test methodology and results?

    How many do you propose to buy per person?
    For a PWD I think you need at least two, one for slippers and one for most used outdoor footwear, going out in slippers (plus nightie at later stages) is very common.
