Caring for someone, whether they are elderly, frail, have a life long illness or maybe a physical or learning disability can be very rewarding. It can also be very tiring and stressful and have an impact on your own health.
Lots of people do not realise that they are ‘carers’ they just do the right thing for the people they love and don’t expect any help. By providing information, emotional and practical support, we hope to bring our services to these people, easing the stress they find themselves under and helping them to be better equipped for their caring role. We understand that carers often experience a sense of isolation, stress, guilt and anger and that caring can also be very tiring, stressful and leave you battling with your emotions. The caring role can also deepen relationships and understanding and can be very rewarding for some people.
