Are you a Carer?

We are currently compiling a register of Carers in our Practice.

 Who Is A Carer?

A Carer is someone who, without payment, regularly helps a

disabled, ill or frail relative, friend or neighbour.

 
A Carer may look after someone with:

  • A Learning Disability
  • A Physical Disability                             carers picture
  • A Mental Illness
  • A sight or hearing difficulty
  • Alcohol / Drug related problems
  • HIV or AIDS
  • Other special needs relating to children and older people.

A Carer may be of any age—this includes:

  • Young carers under 18

Why Are We Doing This?

The proposed outcome of gathering all this information about Carers is the opportunity to assess the needs of a Carer. Hopefully it will enable us to set up services with the help of other caring professions, (i.e. Social Services) that will assist or support Carers in their day to day tasks.
