Carers Week 8-14 June
If you support a friend or family member due to their illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse – you are a carer.
Are you a Carer?
We are currently compiling a register of Carers in our Practice.
Who Is A Carer?
A Carer is someone who, without payment, regularly helps a
disabled, ill or frail relative, friend or neighbour.
A Carer may look after someone with:
- A Learning Disability
- A Physical Disability
- A Mental Illness
- A sight or hearing difficulty
- Alcohol / Drug related problems
- HIV or AIDS
- Other special needs relating to children and older people.
A Carer may be of any age—this includes:
- Young carers under 18
Why Are We Doing This?
The proposed outcome of gathering all this information about Carers is the opportunity to assess the needs of a Carer. Hopefully it will enable us to set up services with the help of other caring professions, (i.e. Social Services) that will assist or support Carers in their day to day tasks.
If you are a Carer please print and complete the Carers Registration Form below and return it to the Surgery
