Lincolnshire Carers

Who is a carer?

Do you look after a relative or friend who due to ill health, physical or mental illness, disability, frailty or addiction cannot manage without your support?  Then you are a carer and may want to talk to someone about your caring role and any support needs you may have.

Anyone can become a carer.  Carers come from all walks of life, all cultures and can be any age.

A young carer is someone under the age of 18.

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.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • 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?
