If you’re a Carer who helps and supports someone who can’t manage on their own, we want to ensure YOU get all the support YOU need.
To be able to do this we need to know certain facts about your caring situation. Your medical record will be marked as you being a carer to ensure you receive the care you need around the needs of your carer role.
Please complete our carers form, available at reception. If you are agreeable, we will pass your details to the Carers Service, a countywide organisation providing relevant information and advice, local support services, newsletter and telephone linkline for carers. With your permission, we will also refer you to have your needs assessed by Adult Care Services, alternatively you can refer yourself by following this link https://derbyshirecarers.co.uk/registration-and-referral.
The Carer’s Association will carry out a Carers’ Needs Assessment. There is no charge for this, and it’s your chance to discuss your role as a Carer and what help you may need to:
- Support you as a Carer
- Maintain your own health
- Balance caring with other aspects of your life, like work and family, looking at both your current and future needs.
