IMPORTANT MEDICATION INFORMATION

Are You a Carer?

Do you look after a friend or family member who is ill, disabled, has mental health problems or is misusing drugs or alcohol?

If you are a carer 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.

  • Have you ever wondered what would happen to the person you look after if you were suddenly taken ill or admitted to hospital?
