Why refer to the Carers’ Resource?
“We have been really impressed with the service provided by the Carers’ Resource. The patients have been equally pleased. It is a relief to know that we now have someone who can help out with the wide range of issues experienced by carers.”
“The carer support ofﬁcer is so approachable; she gets very quickly onto the case and does what she says she’s going to do. Carers tend to neglect themselves; by picking up on their problems and stresses, this service keeps them from being ill.”
“For many carers asking for help is almost an admission of failure, but having an independent carer support worker in our practice sanctions the service and gives them permission to access it. The value of time the support worker is able to devote to each carer is immeasurable.”
“During my mum’s illness, The Carers’ Resource rang regularly to ask how I was. It was so lovely to hear their cheerful voice when I was trying to deal with all the problems. The information they gave me was invaluable.”
“Patients I have referred in the past year have come back looking as if a great weight has been lifted from their shoulders.“
