Hi and welcome to TP.

You might want to call the Alzheimer's Society to find your local branch. Talking Point works well as an on-line support forum, but it's not set up to provide the sort of face-to-face contact you may be looking for, and there are no online chat facilities. Which is not to say that if you have a question or a comment there won't be many responses: it's just not real time.

Best wishes

Jennifer
