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.

    Hello everyone I am a second year student nurse who's own grandmother had alzimers in her later years. I am looking for knowledge which I believe you can provide me. I would like to know:

    How you felt before being diagnosed? (Feelings) and what made you seek out a diagnosis

    How as a carer you first noticed your significant other having dementia symptoms? What were they? How did you feel?

    How did you feel as a carer or personal with dementia when you was first diagnosed?

    What did you change to accommodate the condition?

    What did you know about dementia at the beginning?

    What did you know about dementia after diagnosis or later on?

    Is there anything else you can tell me about your experience with the condition that will help others in understanding how it effects a person and their family/friends/ carers?

    Thanks very much

    Sarah
