If you are giving someone support because they are struggling to cope and you do not get paid for this, then you are a CARER.
Caring can change lives and can affect you physically and mentally. It can be exhausting, it can be rewarding, either way it can take a toll.
Your caring role can affect your own health and wellbeing.
Talk to your GP surgery and make sure they are aware of your caring role.
To get free help, advice and support ask your health professional to refer you to Action for Carers Oxfordshire, alternatively pick up and complete the leaflet in the surgery or call Christine Stanbridge on 07827 235456.
