Are you a carer?

A family carer can be a husband, wife, partner, son, daughter, mother, father, grandparent, grandchild, a friend or a neighbour.

Many people do not see themselves as family carers. Statistically, it takes two years for people to recognise themselves in this role.

A family carer’s life is often restricted by the need to be on-call, for just for an hour a day or up to 24 hours a day – because the person you look after cannot be safely left alone for long periods. A little trained assistance can have an enormous benefit on your health and lifestyle.

Not sure if you are a family carer? Read our carer checklist to find out.
