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'm doing a 10k Memory Walk on 28/9 in Victoria Park, London.

    I have a justgiving page if anyone would like to donate. I will let you know the details.

    Or just keep your fingers crossed for me; my training consists of tea and biccies so far;)

    We're doing the Dundee one on Sunday. It's only 5k but I'll be pushing Bill in the wheelchair. We've raised £540 so far and I'm delighted!!!

    Did the one in Nottingham today along with my two kids and the dog, raised just over £300. Training consisted of los of tea and biccies and of course the pre walk curry last night (just in case I needed jet propulsion) :eek:

    Well done! Our T shirts arrived yesterday and I'm having a pre-walk G&T at the moment. This training schedule is gruelling! Roll on tomorrow.
