Are you an unpaid carer?
Do you do any of the following for a loved one, parent, family member, neighbour or friend?
Washing and dressing
Organise medicines and medical visits
If so, then you are a carer and are entitled to support to help you in your caring role. This can include 1 to 1 advice, support groups with other carers, training, and help with costs.
Here at Glenside Country Practice we are committed to making sure carers are given the chance to obtain any support they feel they need, be it simply information and advice to emotional support and benefits.
If you would like to know more, the Practice has 2 Carer Champions, 1 at each of our sites – Michelle at Corby Glen and Dawn at Castle Bytham - who can give you further information, or you can call the Lincolnshire Carers Service at the County Council Customer Service Centre (CSC) on:
01522 782224 – Adult Carers 18+
01522 553275 – Young Carers
Both numbers are available Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm
Carers FIRST is an organisation which offers emotional and practical support to carers, and after your initial contact with CSC you can be referred onto them for further assistance.
It is important to know that you, as a carer, can have the support you need.
IF YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE, WHO LOOKS AFTER YOU?
