Are you a Carer ?

Are you a Carer or does someone care for you? Telling the Doctor, Nurse, Health Visitor, District Nurse orCounsellor can help them to support you. If you prefer, tell the Reception Staff, they can inform the Health Professionals for you. We keep a register of Carers so we can offer support when needed.

You may be caring for someone already, regularly helping with every day tasks or giving the support they need to stay in their own home. You may see it as part of your life, or duty to care for your Mum, Dad, partner, child or friend, but there may be times when some extra help is needed.

Did you know that as a carer you can receive support and funding towards short breaks ? You can get help with financial support and a range of other help. Visit the Swindon Carers Centre.
