Do you pop in to check on an elderly relative, friend or neighbour daily?

Do you support someone who is seriously ill or disabled?

Do you manage a loved one’s medication?

...If your answer is yes to any of these, you are a carer.

Caring for a loved one who is ill, disabled or older can be valuable and rewarding, but without the right support caring can have an impact on your health, your job, your finances and your social life.
