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 @Justwright

    I remember feeling like that. It's so hard when a parent who used to be a source of wisdom and advice gets dementia. I found the role reversal one of the hardest things to deal with.

    All I can say is I survived and you too will find support and guidance here from people who truly understand. It got me through the hardest of times.
