    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

    Best place to start with is contacting your local social service department who can tell you what carer group are in your area .

    also your local princess royal carers group http://www.carers.org/ .
    that on they main page

    also your loacl AZ group , they have a carer group
