1. Expert Q&A: Living well as a carer - Weds 28 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 Wednesday 28 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.

    hi everyone I’m new to the group and trying to support a friend. Her mother needs to be moved back to the UK and funding and accommodation has now finally been organised. We need a qualified dementia cater to escort her to the UK. Her daughter is in the UK now but has Brocken her leg and cannot travel anyway. Does anyone know of such a service.? All expenses will be covered. Flying from Tenerife to UK

    Try a google on medical escort on plane UK

    Although I could not see dementia mentioned in any of the hits they look like the best place to start unless somebody knows of a specific company.

    If Nitram's route doesn't work for you, you could try calling a care agency (local to where she will be living here) and asking if one of their carers would be prepared to fly out there and escort her back. I have no idea if they would do it, but if not they might know someone who would.

    Hi and welcome to TP
    What a shame you didn't ask a couple of days ago, two of our carers (sisters) flew back from Tenerife on Monday and I could have asked them if they'd do it.
    There must be dozens of carers and nurses on holiday in Tenerife at the moment who'll be flying home soon if only you could find a way of contacting one and avoiding the cost of getting someone a return flight from the UK and possibly a couple of days stay to give them chance to get to know your mum.
