Are you are Carer ? 

 

What is a carer?

 

A carer is anyone, including children and adults who look after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support.

 

When we refer to carers, this is inclusive of both adult and young carers.

 

Why do carers need help?

 

Many carers do not see themselves as carers and it takes them an average of two years to acknowledge their role as a carer.

 

It can be difficult for carers to see their caring role as seperate from the relationship they have with the person for whom they care for, whether that relationship is a parent, child, sibling, partner or friend.

 

It is likely that every one of us will have caring responsibilities at some time in our lives with the challenges faced by carers taking many forms. Many carers juggle their caring responsibilities with work, study and other family commitments. Some, in particular young carers, are not known to be carers. They dont tell relatives, friends or health professionals about their responsibilities because of a fear of seperation, guilt, pride or other reasons.

 

This means that the sort of roles and responsibilities that carers have to provide varies widely. They range from help with everyday tasks such as getting out of bed and personal care such as bathing, to emotional support such as helping someone cope with symptoms of mental illness.

 

If you feel that you are a carer please contact the surgery so that we can include this in your medical record. We will provide you with a carers pack and any help or information needed.
