The Seasons of Care Project
The onset of the Caring role can in itself be difficult, this may occur without warning such as caring for a loved one following an accident, or could involve Caring for someone with a congenital disorder.
Equally the loss of the Caring role through death or the Cared for moving into long term Care can have instrumental effects on the Carer.
At whatever stage the Caring role can be demanding and have a huge impact on a Carers life.
The transitions of the Caring role can often mean that Carers can become isolated with many Carers failing to address their own health and wellbeing needs.
The Seasons of Care project provides a holistic support package enabling Carers to feel better supported and able to make informed choices about their caring role and own health and wellbeing.
Once a Carer is referred to the project they will be allocated a named Transitional Worker who will work with the Carer to produce a Carers Plan, and also to provide the Carer with support, information and advice throughout the Caring role.
The Carers Plan will assess the needs and tailor a holistic support package for the Carer’s personal needs at varying stages of Caring including when Caring ends.
Carers will also be offered :
One to one support, including Outreach work to reach the most isolated Carers in our community.
Annual Carers Information Event – a networking event for Carers and Professionals
Group Support through the operation of Carer Led weekly support groups, including specific transition related support groups
Carers Information Packs
Carers Seminars based around Carers own health and Wellbeing
Referrals to other specialist organisations.
Support to apply for external funding and benefits
