Looking after someone?


Caring for someone can be very difficult and many people find that they need extra help with the care they provide.

Find out more about the Carers Direct helpline.




We recognise the important role of Carers in looking after dependent relatives or friends. Caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community, which is often a 24-hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the Carer.


Please make it known to the receptionist if you are caring for someone so that you can be offered access to accurate information on a range of topics such as entitlement to benefits and respite care, and not least, a listening ear when things get too much.
