AM I A CARER?
You are a carer if you provide unpaid support to a relative, friend or neighbour who couldn't manage without your help.
Caring for someone who needs support due to their age, physical or mental illness, disability or substance misuse, involves a range of tasks to help with their day to day living.
Being a carer can have a big impact on your life, but there is support available to assist you.
Our Carers Champion at the surgery is Rebecca Stone. Please do not hesitate to contact Rebecca or if you would like to be referred to Carers In Hertfordshire please either fill in a referral form and pass to reception or you can print and bring to reception and I will ensure your information is referred to the service.
