A carer is someone who, supports (not as a profession) a relative, child, friend or neighbour who could not manage without their help, due to frailty, illness, disability, mental health, addiction.
We try and provide support for carers if you or the person you care for need to use the hospitals.
Do you care for someone who is in hospital? Or are you in hospital and have someone at home who you usually care for?
Hospital Carers Support Coordinators; they are available to offer support, information and advice to help you in your caring role. Not everyone chooses to become a carer and many carers don’t see themselves as one. If you would like a chat or more information on what services are available, please contact Julie or Lucia, contact details below.
If you are looking after someone who is not in hospital, support is still available from WIRED Carers Centre or Halton Carers Centre. Both centres support adult and young carers. Services include;
- emotional support
- information & advice
- signposting/referral service
- financial advice
