DO YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE?

 

If you are a carer we would be grateful if you could let us know so that we can record this on your notes.

The responsibility of looking after someone can sometimes be quite challenging and it is important to look after your own health. If you feel you need any support from the surgery please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange an appointment with your Doctor.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

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?
