Are You a Carer?

Are you a Carer?

 

If you are looking after someone who couldn’t cope without your help, we really would like you to let us know, so that we can ensure you receive all the support and information we can give. A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support. You are a Young Carer if you are under 18 in this role.

 

You can be added to the practice 'carer register' and gain access to information and support. This includes access to a named Carer Champion.

  
The Practice Carers Champions are: Rachel Dales and Helen Noon.
 

A Carer Champion is a staff member at your practice who support carers.

 

As a Carer, you are entitled to an annual flu vaccine, a health check and can request a Carers Assessment.

Ask in your GP practice for more information.

 

Carers can get information, advice and tailored support by contacting the Nottinghamshire Carers Hub by calling 0115 824 8824. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 9am until 5pm.

 

You can speak to an experienced support worker who will provide a personalised service that meets your individual needs. The service is available to all carers and all ages.

 

Alternatively, you can contact them using the following methods:

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