1. Expert Q&A: Living well as a carer - Weds 28 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 Wednesday 28 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’m desperate for advice or help if anyone has been in a similar situation.. my friends mum went to daycare and apparently said she didn’t want to come home:-( she has dementia and gets really confused. We have been told by social services that she doesn’t want to see the family and there is nothing we can do to challenge it ! We don’t know where she is and have been told by SS there is nothing we can do .. we have no money for lawyers and we are desperate... any advice ???

    Unless they have grounds to believe that she is being abused or neglected this sounds appalling. Talk to her GP and ask him to investigate on your behalf.
