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.

    I got my husband a furry cat. It "breathes and purrs" continually and has its own bed (It has a battery that lasts about 3 months). He likes it as it stays on his knee, which our cat refuses to do. He named it Tiger. The company make several different cats and lots of breeds of puppies.

    My mum has a virtual Zoo on her bed, soft toys and hand puppets of loads of animals - I assume she bought them originally for my nephews, but they've stayed. She especially likes Candy and Floss, two spaniel soft toys, mum used to breed Golden Cocker Spaniels when we were kids.

    Anything to make her smile x

    I got a lovely golden spaniel toy for my mum from a kids toys ware house. It's quite lifelike and she adored it for the last 18 months ( to the point I bought a couple of spares in case he walked into another residents room!!)

    She's moved on a stage now and doesn't seem to notice it - but for a while it brought enormous pleasure
