There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links to 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?
