Carers Information

Content Supplied by NHS Choices

 

Jo Sansome is the practice Carers Champion.

A carer is anyone who offers unpaid support, for a friend or family member who, due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without support. Anyone can become a carer; carers come from all walks of life, all cultures and can be of any age.  Many don't choose to become carers; it just happens.  Every carer and their situation is individual and will have specific and unique needs and aspirations. 

Maggie, Carers' Federation Support Worker for Rushcliffe is at Ruddington Medical Centre on the first Tuesday of the month from 11am - 12 noon.  Maggie offers information and support around your rights and entitlements as a carer.  Where appropriate Maggie will signpost carers to appropriate services such as condition specific organisations e.g Dementia, Stroke Association and more.  If you are a carer come and speak to Maggie to find out how she can help and what support is out there for you, to support your emotional, mental, physical and social wellbeing.

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?
