Welcome @Violeta You've come to the right place for information and support :) If there's something specific that you'd like to ask about carry on posting, and you might like to start a new thread in a forum that fits your topic eg I care for someone with dementia.

Hello @Violeta and welcome from me too

I wonder if you may find any local support services like a memory café to be of some use. You can do a post code check to see what's available to you when the lockdown is lifted by following this link https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/find-support-near-you

The full list of the very informative Factsheets can be found with this link https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/get-support/publications-factsheets-full-list

If communicating becomes an issue, a few handy tips can be picked from the useful thread that can be reached with this link https://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/threads/compassionate-communication-with-the-memory-impaired.30801/
