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.

    How many ways will people find to sell you water?
    I've never bought them as the care home classes them as a choke hazard and as a high sugar product, so whilst the family can bring them in you're not allowed to give them to any residents other than the one you care for.
    The human body absorbs H2O and the form it is ingested isn't relevant, by the time anything get's to the large intestine where the water is absorbed it's a slurry. I'm sure at sometime we've all seen the contents of the human stomach (for one reason or another) and I know we're all familiar with the end product of the digestive process, well water is absorbed into the blood stream somewhere between the two as H2O and there is no "magic H2O".

    You see that's what I thought when I read about them.
