Carers Information

Are You a Carer?                                                                                       

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you.

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Telling people
  • Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break
  • Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers
  • Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?

  • Here at the surgery we maintain a register of all our patients who are caring for others.

The reason for this is to identify those carers, so we ensure they are offered the help and advice that is available to assist and support them in their valuable caring role.


If you are a child or adult caring for someone, at home or elsewhere, who has a physical or mental illness, has learning difficulties, suffers alcohol or drug addiction problems or who is disabled, elderly or frail ...

YOU ARE A CARER

Most carers do not recognise themselves under the term "carer". They perceive themselves as just helping someone who could not remain living in their own home without the help they provide. A carer can be an adult or a child. Many carers juggle paid work or study with their unpaid caring responsibilities. The term "carer" should not be confused with that of an employed care worker or someone who acts as a volunteer for an organisation.

To register as a carer please ask at reception for the relevant form.


QUESTIONS

Please ask yourself the following questions:

1. Do you need a health check or advice relating to your own health needs?

If so, arrange an appointment with a practice nurse.

2. Do you need information about services and organisations to help and support you in your caring role?

If so, information is available from reception, the waiting room area and through the practice website.

3. Are you aware of the benefits that may be available to you or the person(s) you care for to help with the cost of caring?

If not, information is available from Carers Gloucestershire, Carers UK and Gloucestershire County Council.

4. Do you need someone to talk to in confidence about your caring situation?

If so, contact a carer's support worker at Carers Gloucestershire or Gloucestershire Young Carers.

5. If you provide a substantial amount of care, do you know about your rights to a carer's assessment through Gloucestershire County Council?

If not, contact the adult helpdesk on (01452) 426868.

6. Are you aware of the help and support available through Guide and PALS?
