Are You a Carer?
A Carer is someone who, without payment, cares for someone else, who because of illness, disability, or infirmity, cannot manage without help.
The person being cared for may be a partner, spouse, child, other relative, neighbour or friend.
Carers can be any age or gender. They can be found in all communities.
A Carers’ lifestyle can be restricted and Carers can become mentally and physically exhausted, because of their caring role.
Many people do not identify themselves as Carers and do not seek necessary help and support.
If you are a Carer, you may think you are alone, that no-one notices you, or that what you do doesn’t really have much impact. You are wrong!
North Staffs Carers can help and offer you support with your caring role.
