Making Carers Visible - Carers Week 2020
When you're caring for someone, it is really important to ensure that you look after yourself too. This is particularly important at the moment when some people are increasing the amount of unpaid care they provide.
Caring can be very rewarding, but without the right support it can have a negative impact on your health, career, finances and relationships.
This year, you may have found that your caring role has become more challenging, or you may have taken on new caring responsibilities.
Need information and advice?

Do we know you are a Carer? Or do you have a Carer?
Are you providing help and support to a relative, partner or friend who cannot manage because of disability, illness or frailty?
Let us know by completing a Carer Registration form (available from your GP Surgery reception)
Hand the completed form to your GP Surgery who will make a note on your medical records of the person you care for, that you are a Carer and on your records that you are a Carer.
If you would like us to refer you to Cheshire West Carers Support, please also sign the consent on the form. They will send you information such as regular newsletter, how to register for Carer's Emergency Card. They will inform you of any events happening in your area, advice and support available, including access to respite, emotional and financial support.
