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.

    I think I'm going to have to start my Mum on pull ups - she's quite a big lady - does anyone have any suggestions - or experience on what one's to use?

    Thanks for that. I was thinking I'll have to have her assessed by the Continence Service because she's constantly having accidents - but I've heard they don't use very good pads.

    My Mum now uses Tena pull ups - Super - not provided by Continence service but the only product which is effective. Have to pay for them ourselves - but save on washing!
