Carers

A carer is a person of any age who provides or intends to provide on-going, unpaid support to a partner, child, relative or friend.  Without this help the health and wellbeing of the cared for person could deteriorate due to frailty, disability, a serious health condition, mental ill health or substance misuse. 

Are you a carer?

If you are a carer, please let us know, you can your name and contact details plus the name of the person you care for with one of our receptionists. Please also ask for a carer’s pack which is full of information to help support you. 

IF YOU WOULD LIKE ANY HELP OR INFORMATION PLEASE ASK  AT RECEPTION TO SPEAK TO THE CARERS LEAD - ALISON COSHER - OR TELEPHONE ON 01929 462376

WE HAVE A RESOURCE FILE FOR CARERS AVAILABLE ON THE RECEPTION DESK. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO MAKE USE OF THIS.
