Do you look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill? If so, you are a Carer and we would like to support you. No matter how much you love the person you are looking after, caring can be a lonely and stressful experience, which can effect your health. You may feel a little low, have aches and pains from providing extra help, or be exhausted and therefore more susceptable to infections. You may not have time to care for yourself. So if you feel that we could help by giving you a check up or putting you in touch with a Carer Support Worker please make an appointment with your GP, or complete a form from the Carer’s Notice Board in reception and someone will contact you.
The Carers Notice Board is kept upto date with useful information and contact groups.
To contact the Somerset Carer Support Workers direct phone 0800 31 68 600 or email email@example.com or visit their website : http://www.somersetcarers.org
From 11th Jan 2021 to 11th Jan 2021
Free online event for unpaid carers in Somerset
We are working in partnership with the SOMERSET CARERS SERVICE to make it even easier for unpaid carers in Somerset to access support and information.
Whilst caring for someone is very rewarding, it can also be challenging at times, so we are holding an online meeting to give unpaid carers the chance to connect with other people who are in similar circumstances and really understand.
We’ll also share useful information on local health and wellbeing support, with members of the Spark Somerset and Somerset Carers Service teams on hand to answer any questions.
The next meeting is taking place on Monday 11th January at 11am, you can register HERE.
The following meetings will be:
Monday 25th January at 7pm, you can register HERE.
Monday 8th February at 11am, you can register HERE.
