The event on the 24th of November 2017 held by the Carer’s Resource will have workshops, question and answer sessions and explore the important issues for carers.
Topics will include the Care Act 2014 which details the process for accessing help and helps carers access support for themselves to allow them to care for their loved one.
Carers are entitled to advice and information even when self funding. It is important to register with your GP that you are a carer and to have an emergency plan should the carer not be able to care. Carers need to look after their own well being (often easier said than done). Many carers are unaware that they are entitled to a free flu jab and a health check.
