Experts will be available online to answer your specific questions on issues surrounding dementia such as diagnosis, care concerns and treatment, and to provide you with valuable help and guidance.
After the forums have closed, all information will be available to read via the Dementia UK, NHS Choices and talkhealth web sites.
