DO YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE WHO IS
ILL, FRAIL, DISABLED OR MENTALLY ILL?
We are interested in identifying carers, especially those people who may be caring without help or support. We know that carers are often “hidden” looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer.
Caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community, which is often a 24-hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the carer. Carers should receive appropriate support by way of access to accurate information on a range of topics such as entitlement to benefits and respite care and not least, a listening ear when things get too much.
If you are a carer, please either ask at reception for a
CARERS IDENTIFICATION AND REFERRAL FORM
which you can complete to let us know about your caring responsibilities
or you can print off the form below, complete and hand into one our receptionists.
