It will be an opportunity for people caring for someone to talk with other carers and organisations that can help carers and those living with dementia.
Join us on Twitter on Monday 21 September 2015 from 8-9pm using #carershour, and help us make it a real success.
The more people that tweet using the hashtag on the night, the bigger our voice will be! This is a real opportunity for anyone who might be struggling to care for someone with dementia to access virtual support.
Dementia experts tweeting on behalf of Carers Trust will include Louise Marks, Dementia Policy Officer and Ruth Hannan, Policy & Development Manager. Stephany Bardzil, Development & Communications Manager at Alzheimer’s Support, will be providing support directly from a dementia charity.

Giles Meyer, CEO of Carers Trust, said:
“This new data blows all previous figures out of the water, revealing a generation of young carers who are being neglected by society."
