Although caring for an older person can be rewarding, it can sometimes be tough too. You may not even think of yourself as a carer or be aware of the many sources of emotional, practical and financial support that are available to you. We cover the main things to help lighten the load a little.
Age NI, with support from the Department of Health Mental Health Fund and Carers' Support Fund and The Community Foundation, has developed a guide for carers. Learn more about your rights, financial entitlements, accessing support, and looking after yourself.
Every year our Advice Service deals with thousands of calls from older people in need. Call us today to make sure that you are receiving all the help and support available to you.
