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.

    Hi, both my parents moved to Spain 17 years ago with my brother and his family. My mum became ill with kidney problems almost 2 years ago and has been diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia and Alzheimer’s. My dad too has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. My brother in Spain is struggling to provide them with appropriate care as well as run a business and it is clear that they need to go into a nursing home where they can be looked after properly.
    I need help and advice on repatriating them to the UK and finding them the appropriate care.
    Thanks in advance.
