Support for Friends and Family Carers
Do you provide support to a partner, relative, friend or neighbour who couldn’t cope without your help? This could be due to old age, frailty, disability, a serious health condition, mental ill health or substance misuse. If the answer is yes, you are an Carer.
Many carers do not identify themselves as a carer. Instead, they see themselves as someone’s partner, relative or friend who is simply ‘doing their best’ to help someone.
There are many benefits of being identified as a carer, which include:
If you have ticked the box asking to be referred to the Carer Support worker, Claire will contact you to offer support, or arrange a Carers Health and Wellbeing Assessment.
Why not come along to our Carer’s coffee afternoon, that runs on the first Wednesday of the month, 1-3pm at St Pauls Church Paignton, to meet and chat with other unpaid carers.
