1. Expert Q&A: Living well as a carer - Weds 28 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 Wednesday 28 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.

    Ode ear, ode ear.

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
    may God (?) hold you in the palm of His hand.

    Gosh my pet ...what an end to your/their journey. .... you never expected this detour did you?
    I am so pleased that you managed to find the people behind the illness .. Ronnie Scotts eh? dead glam that was! ;);)
    Now it's time to build the life that you and Peter ( and me bonnie lad of course) choose next. How lovely that you won't have to scrimp and save for every little thing, and you can take your mind over the planning.

    I missed my Mam more this Christmas than I did last year, and probably more even than the last couple she was here for, and I guess that you will have felt the same without your Mam and Peter's folks too...... but now....... it's your time....go on enjoy it, you've earned it.x.x.x

    Happy New Year my pet....... and love to you all.x.x.x

    See, clear as a bell now, I am going to miss your teachings.

    Ronnie Scotts in London, a place I used to go after the pubs closed - jazz, cigarette smoke and whisky - made for some very strange late night conversations.

    At least visit the tea room now and then, take care and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

    Gwen we will miss you. And as I'm here in my bungalow and working in my own (too) large garden, I'll think of you and your family in yours
    - with the sherry and the money, which I don't have! But I'm smiling to myself here at the thoughts of your mil, hugging that surprise to herself. What pleasure it must have given her, to know that after all you and OH had done, when it was over, as she said, you would have a lovely surprise.
    Take care Gwen. xx

    Dear Gwen,

    My heart soared when I read your news; comfort coming your way through MIL's secret. Delightful- but sad we will be hearing less from you. I can understand why you need to step back and wish you nothing but the best. You deserve all the happiness that is coming to you.

    I hope you tread an easier path from now on.

    Much love to you my friend.

    I'm so sorry I missed this Gwen.
    Coming to terms with it all, so difficult. But how wonderful to have such a surprise.
    Your humour and down to earthness (?) have given me a helping hand so often along the road.
    I hope apart from your worries about Daniel that life will be kinder now to you both.

    Sorry to read the sad news re. your in-law family.
    All my best wishes for you, Pete & Daniel in 2017.

    On a practical note perhaps Sal might like a fur coat bed?

    Sorry to read your news Gwen. Late condolences.

    I don't get on to TP often.

    It was nice to hear of your surprise/shock. Something for you to plan and look forward to once everything settles down.

    Good luck

    Wow , amazing good fortune.
    So pleased for you Gwen.
    I too have become the recipient of great good fortune which could go back tonight if I could have my lovely mum back as she was.

    Goodness. I don't pop in here often these days and was only wondering how things were with you. I understand the relief but send my heartfelt condolences for your losses.
