If you’re a Carer who helps and supports someone who can’t manage on their own, we want to ensure YOU get all the support YOU need.
Am I a carer?
Carers are people who, without payment, provide help and support to a family member, friend or neighbour who cannot manage on their own due to physical or mental illness, disability, substance misuse or frailty brought on by old age.
Anyone can become a carer; carers come from all walks of life, all cultures and can be of any age including children. Many feel they are doing what anyone else would in the same situation; looking after their mother, son, or best friend and just getting on with it.
Carers don’t choose to become carers: it just happens and they have to get on with it; if they did not do it, who would and what would happen to the person they care for?
If this sounds like you, you are probably a carer. Support is available to you.
If you feel you are a carer you should let the Practice know. We can offer you annual health checks and make arrangements to make our doctors as accessible as possible for you.
