If you are a carer, or you have a carer, we would like to have that information, with your permission. We know you are very important, and we want to offer help and advice to carers in line with government guidelines. There are many organisations available to help you, and you can get help by being assessed for the help you need, or by contacting lots of agencies offering help and advice.
If you are a carer, it is particularly important that you take care of your own health and welfare, and if you want any advice or help, please contact the surgery, and we will try to help or advise you where you can get help.
Caring for Carers at Improving Lives Plymouth can be contacted and they will offer a home visit or a telephone call if preferred, to discuss any caring role and to find out what specific support that may be needed or be interested in. Information which is needed, can then either be sent out, or support with a carer’s assessment and any other signposting and referrals as necessary.
