Carers

If you are a carer we can offer additional support and resources. 

If you wish to review your own health please book an appointment with a GP or ANP.

 

A carer is an individual (irrespective of age) who regularly looks after a child, relative, partner or neighbour who is unable to mange on their own due to illness, disability, frailty, mental distress or impairment.

 

A carer can be a child looking after an older person or parent, or an older person looking after a disabled partner. The definition can be quite wide-ranging.

 

The term "carer" would not normally apply if the person is:

  • a paid carer

  • a volunteer from a volunteer agency

  • anyone providing personal assistance for payment either cash or kind
