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.

    This is the title of the Book of the week on R4 BBC read by its author Sally Magnusson. Sally’s journalist mother Mamie Baird had Alzheimer’s and Sally is very involved in different ways in this awful illness.

    As always she is interesting and charming.

    I bought that book but could ever bring myself to read it. I eventually gave it away.

    Sally M is also the founder of the Playlist for Life Charity.

    Straight away she mentioned something that I had noticed. Long before any diagnosis the loss of curiosity, of enthusiasm. Of course these things only came spasmodically as we’ve all
    Noticed so it takes a while before the evidence builds up. Another very interesting point is that her mother was a twin but the twin didn’t get the illness!
