1. Expert Q&A: Living well as a carer - Thurs 29 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 Thursday 29 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.

    Hello @sundayisthegreatday

    I think the place to start is going to see your GP. S/he can do tests and get you referred to the right person.

    Certainly see your doctor @sundayisthegreatday

    No one here can tell you what is wrong but we can sympathise with your fears.

    Please see your doctor and then you can post and tell us what they say.

    I would see a GP, there are other causes that could explain your symptoms also. It is better to get someone with experience to run some tests. Do you have access to medical care? I note you say you are from Indonesia. Do you live there?
