Do you look after someone who through illness, disability or frailty cannot manage without you?
If so you are a CARER.
A carer is a person of any age, adult or child, who provides unpaid support to a partner, child, relative or friend who couldn’t manage to live independently or whose health or well-being would deteriorate without this help. This could be due to frailty, disability or serious health condition, mental ill health or substance misuse.
Please inform us if you are a carer.
