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 hope she's as clever as the specialist charge nurse who visited my mum at home for her extended memory test. Mum was quite oppositional when she arrived but the nurse cut through all the negativity to the point that mum invited her to call her by her first name at the end of the tests.

    I was present for her visit and was horrified by the extent of the problems mum had with her long term memory never mind her short term memory.

    Good luck tomorrow - I hope it goes well (if that's the word).

    Sending you support and will definitely be thinking about you all tomorrow. The lady calling will understand as you have briefed her. So fingers crossed, all will go well.
