At Carers and Disability Link we understand that caring for someone with a disability or illness or who is frail aged, although rewarding, can also be hard work.
As a Carer it is so easy to focus all of our attention on the person we care for and not leave enough time or energy to care for ourselves.
What is your story? How can we be there for you? Call us. We can come to you or you can visit one of our local centres.
THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
We support Carers by providing:
- Connection with Carers in similar situations
- Information and resources
- Liasion with community groups and service providers
- Opportunities to learn, socialise and relax with other Carers
Who is a carer?
