Carers . . .

Look after someone – relative, friend, neighbour – who is ill, frail or disabled and cannot manage on their own,

It does not mean a professional care worker or personal assistant who gets paid for their work.

Are unpaid and save the NHS in Wales over £7 billion every year. If you are a carer you are a PARTNER IN CARE  and entitled to:

 

  • Be involved in planning the care of the person you look after
  • Request a Carer’s Needs Assessment from your local council office
  • Information and support about your caring role
  • Participate in decisions about hospital discharge arrangements for the person you care for.

 

What kind of help makes life easier for carers?

Financial help – welfare benefits, carers allowance.

Information - right to carers assessment, respite care, being involved if they want to.

When the person they care for is in hospital, participating in arrangements for the person’s discharge.

Looking after their own health. It is recognised that carers neglect their own wellbeing.

 

For further help or assistance please ask Emilia our Practice Nominated Carer`s Champion.
