1. Q&A: Looking after yourself as a carer - Friday 25 January, 3-4pm

    As a carer for a person living with dementia, the needs of that person will often come before your own, and this can mean that you don't always look after yourself.

    However, it's important for both you and the person you care for. But how do you do that properly?

    Our next expert Q&A will be on looking after yourself as a carer. It will be hosted by Angelo from our Knowledge Services team, who focuses on wellbeing. He'll be answering your questions on Friday 25 January 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.

Research project - Catheter Against Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI) trial. Can you help?

    Hi everyone,

    The Research & Development team have been in touch with TP about their newest research partnership, 'Catheter Against Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI) trial'.

    The research is being conducted by Dr Katherine Belfield at University of Nottingham and is investigating prevention of infections from long-term catheter use.

    Want more information?

    Further details and contact information can be found at this link: >>Catheter Against Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI) trial<<

    Thanks everyone!

    That's another pdf from this site I can't open. Are you suddenly using an advanced programme or something? I can open all PDF factsheets.

    Beate, I can open it on my iPad in iBooks. Have you tried that?

    It went into my downloads on my macbook and I had to open it from there. On my iPhone my only option was to open it in iBooks. As you say Beate the factsheets PDFs open directly on my iPhone, iPad and macbook.

    What device are you using @Beate? Because I didn't have an issue with this one on either my iMac or my android phone.

    Apologies everyone - we're having issues with PDFs not opening at the moment. Our technical team are on the case and hopefully this will be sorted as soon as possible tomorrow. In the meantime, please bear with us!

    @jenniferpa Beate doesn't seem to be online just now but I'm pretty sure she uses an iPad.

    Thanks for that. It's an iPad 2, and I'm aware that's an old one but I have never had a problem before, and no, it doesn't open in iBooks either.

    It should download and open in iBooks
    You have a problem in common with @Bunpoots in that you could not open the TP annual survey report.

    As before I think I have a solution, try http://docdro.id/3jo4zO6
    File deletes after 60 days of no viewing - don't want to pay for an a/c !!

    My iPad is even older then Beates but I can open the files on my Android tablet and my iPhone so I think it's an age thing..
