Carers undoubtably have a difficult role which can take its toll. For every carer it is important to remember that you’re not alone – as just one part of a support team, we talk to carers all the time and whatever situation you’re in, you will find other carers who know what you’re going through – physically, emotionally, financially.
Here we look at a few options for support, advice and sharing experiences.
