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.

    Mum's birthday today and six of us went to care home to see Mum.

    The staff had put a big banner and balloons on her bedroom door and also above the chair where she sits in the lounge. Her room was full of flowers from visitors she had had the day before and the staff had organised a beautiful cake and candles and everyone sung happy birthday. I didn't have to do a thing except turn up.

    I was so grateful and Mum was so happy because it was much more of an 'event' with more people than it would have been if she were at home with me. It was just a lovely day and I am just so happy that it went well, that Mum has settled and that the staff are so kind. I just wanted to tell everyone. X
