My son has a disability and I have to spend all my time looking after him
I do the weekly shopping for my house-bound neighbour
I help my mum get dressed because she is ill and can't manage on her own
I have to do the house work because my wife is disabled
If you are looking after a relative, neighbour or friend who, because of illness or disability, cannot manage without help then you are a CARER.
As a carer, it is important that you look after your own needs and get the right help, information and support.
