Caring for a loved one can be a very rewarding and fulfilling experience, but it is also a big undertaking that can leave you feeling tired and stressed. It is important that you look after yourself and take advantage of the support available to you as a carer.
If you look after a friend or family member, who relies on your support to manage their daily life, you are a carer.
The number of informal (unpaid) carers is increasing amongst the older generation which is why we offer a range of support for older carers and carers of older people. Our support is free and confidential and we are here to help you.
