Are You a Carer?

 

Are you caring at home for a dependant relative, partner, child or friend who needs your support due to illness or disability?  If so, you are a carer.  It is important that your doctor knows you are a carer.  Please fill in a 'Carers Identification Form' available from the surgery and hand it in at the reception desk or click here for an on-line version and for further information. 

Carers can also find out about sources of help and support by contacting the Carers Association Southern Staffordshire (CASS) on 01785 606675 or the Carers Hub, contact details below:

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
