1. Q&A: Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) - Thursday 27 Sept, 3-4pm

    Power of attorney (LPA) is a legal tool that gives another adult - often a carer or family member - the legal authority to make decisions on behalf of someone with dementia, if they become unable to themselves.

    Our next expert Q&A will be hosted by Flora and Helen from our Knowledge Services team. They will be answering your questions on LPA on Thursday 27 September from 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.

Her name will fly around the world!

    As my OH has given up all forms of holiday and travel including caravanning, I decided to sponsor two wonderful people, Jim and Dot Jones who are, at the age of 80, flying around the world gathering sponsorship for the Alzheimer’s Society. As a sponsor I have arranged for Paulines name to be printed on the body of the light aircraft they will use, Jim as pilot and Dot as navigator, on their journey. A fitting final travel adventure even if in name only I think.

    Wow Jim and Dot, there's hope for me then as at only 61 I am a youngster. What a lovely thought to send Pauline's name around the world.

    I would love to go camping again. One day perhaps.
