What is a carer?

I have been looking after my husband for 5 years since he suffered a stroke. He is my husband, It’s my duty to look after him, I didn’t realise I was a carer and had all of this support available to me
Lady From Tenterden
My 45 year old daughter has severe Learning Difficulties and my wife and I look after all of her needs as we always have done, since she was a little girl. I didn’t realise we were carers, we are just doing what anyone would do for their own family
Husband & Wife From Ashford
When my mum comes out of hospital I think I am going to have to give up my job to look after her full time. What do you expect me to do? She is my mum, I owe it to her to look after her. I guess that makes me a carer then
