Carers Information

The Worcestershire Association of Carers is a registered charity providing an independent source of information and support for all adult carers across Worcestershire.  The practice can signpost you to access the help and support the organisation offers to carers.  There are leaflets and forms available at the surgery or you can simply tell the doctor or nurse that you are a carer and we will help you to complete the simple form that will put you in touch with the association.  Alternatively, you can visit their website at www.carersworcs.org.uk.

If you are a Shropshire or Herefordshire patient the association will happily let your local county assocation know that you are a carer and need access to their support.

 

Content Supplied by NHS Choices 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?
