Resources for Spanish-speaking caretakers living in the UK

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
Hi all,
I'm new here, so first let me introduce myself, I'm Mario and I moved to the UK after a degree in Nursery back in Spain (I'm from Barcelona). I've been working in this field for the last 4 years, specifically taking care of Alzheimer's disease patients.
I really appreciate all the resources shared in this forum. But I thought it would be interesting to share some more resources in spanish for my fellow spanish-speaking colleagues, since I know we're a growing group of professionals in this industry.
On of my go-to sites for news and research is KnowAlzheimer, specially their site dedicated to caretakers and how we can take better care of our mental health in a highly stressful job: https://knowalzheimer.com/cuidadores/

If you're new around here and have questions I'll be happy to help.

Sorry for the grammar (I know I still make mistakes!) and thank you for reading.
Let me translate down below for any spanish-reading colleagues:

Hola a todos. Soy Mario, y después de realizar un grado en Enfermería en la Universidad de Barcelona llevo viviendo en UK 4 años, trabajando principalmente como cuidador de personas con Alzheimer. Este foro es un gran recurso para todos quienes nos dedicamos a los cuidados, pero quería compartir también uno de los mejores recursos en español que conozco, del que suelo consultar todas las novedades, especialmente su apartado sobre cuidadores y salud mental, cómo separar trabajo y vida personal, etc. Os dejo el enlace a Knowalzheimer por si os es de interés.
Además, si acabáis de llegar al país o tenéis dudas sobre el trabajo, no dudéis en preguntar lo que necesitéis. Sé que somos muchos los profesionales del sector españoles que venimos a UK buscando un futuro mejor.

Gracias.
Dear Mario

Thank you for posting on our forum. However Carers UK is a charity supporting and advising those who care for friends/relatives in an unpaid, non-professional capacity. Although we do have a few members based outside of the UK we are all mostly UK citizens based in the UK.
