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.

    Dear Lady A

    William's struggles are over and to pass peacefully in sleep is a comfort I think. However nothing truly prepares us for the loss of a loved one so I hope that family and friends are being supportive as you face the coming days together.

    Thoughts and prayers with you Lady A xx

    However much you expect it you're never really prepared are you. A great blessing that William's passing was so peaceful, but you must be in shock. Sending you very much love. Es

    William has gone....and you will be feeling blank, strange, sad, relieved, angry, teary, panicky.... all of the above or none of them.
    Lady A, I have admired your strength of character throughout your story. We've shared smiles, tears, laughs and crossness with you and for you. We will be there for you during this dark time and during the lighter times too.
    Good Bye and God Bless William, and God Bless Lady A and the whole family and their friends too.xx
