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.

    Hello,
    I am Ram and live in UK. My mother aged 92 has dementia. She lives in India. At night she lowers the bedside rail (installed to stop her getting out at night) by pressing on the latch and goes to the bathroom where most of her falls have happened. She forgets to seek the help of the carer who is sleeping nearby.
    Are there any sensor systems that would sound when she gets up or adult proof bed rails? Many thanks.

    Yes, you can get alarms which will go off when she gets up, either by a mat beside the bed which will detect pressure from her stepping on it, or motion sensors which will go off when they detect her moving.

    Google pressure mat alarm and motion sensor alarm and you will get quite a range to choose from
