Questioning if you are a Carer?

Let’s look at the definition from Carers UK

“A Carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help due to illness, disability, mental illness or a substance misuse problem.” images

It may be that you are assisting someone with any single or combination of the following duties:
* Emotional support like listening and talking
* Household chores like cleaning, cooking, washing, ironing, shopping
* Medical care such as helping with medicine dosages or collecting medications
* Personal care like feeding, getting to the toilet, washing, dressing
* Physical care ensuring the person can move around their home
If you are unpaid and providing care then the chances are that you a most definitely a Carer in the true sense of the word. A Carer is different from a paid professional carer, who may be an employee of a Care Provision Company or work on a self-employed basis.
CASS is here to support you, so please never feel alone. Contact CASS if you want to talk through your situation. We’ll be delighted to help or direct you to the most appropriate agency.
