Someone to talk to

Looking after a family member or friend can be hard and can affect the carer’s mental health and wellbeing. As a carer you may have worries, feel pressures, and feel stress and anxiety. You may also have difficult experiences such as bereavement or changes to the health of the person you care for.

It is important that as a carer you benefit from good support and having the right people to talk to. This is very important for your own mental and physical wellbeing. And it also means you are better equipped to look after the person you care for.
