Free advice guide for carers
EVERY day, another 6,000 people take on a caring responsibility and, by 2037, it’s anticipated that the number of carers in the UK will increase to nine million.
To coincide with Carers Week 2018, Independent Age, the older people’s charity, has launched a new, free advice guide to help people identify as carers, and access the practical, financial and emotional support available to them.
The guide, called ‘Caring for someone: How to get the support you need,’ is suitable for anyone who might be a carer.
It explains carers’ rights, and the benefits, services and support available to help look after someone else.
It also looks at what happens when a caring role ends.
It can be downloaded from www.independentage.org/caring-forsomeone, or ordered for free by calling 0800 319 6789.
