Information for Carers

Information for Carers

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

Does this sound like you?

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.

  • Ask to see the surgery's copy of the Carers' Information File
  • Ask to speak to the surgery's Carer's Link Contact
    They will be able to help you access the information you need
