Service continues to run remotely.
The Wirral has a reported 42.000 carers with around 18.000 of these being over 65 years old. Many of these carers will be caring for loved ones who have been diagnosed with dementia and offered little if no support following diagnosis of this condition.
Carer support offers emotional support to both carers and the cared for who need to come to terms with a diagnosis. We introduce clients to carers groups and offer information and advice.
The Carer Support Service is for carers who care for a loved one who has dementia. We run our Carer Support Service to help take some of the strain with both practical and emotional support. We have significant expertise in supporting the carers of people with dementia.
