DO YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE WHO IS ILL, FRAIL, DISABLED OR MENTALLY ILL?

 

We are interested in identifying carers, especially those people who may be caring without help or support. We know that carers are often "hidden", looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer.

 

Caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community, which is often a 24 hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the carer. Carers should receive appropriate support by way of access to accurate information on a range of topics, such as entitlement to benefits and respite care and not at least, a listening ear when things get too much.

 

As a Carer, you are also entitled to have your needs assessed by the South Ayrshire Carers Centre, 43 Sandgate, Ayr Tel: 01292 263000. A Carer's Assessment is a chance to talk about your needs as a carer and the possible ways help could be given. It also looks at the needs of the person you care for. There is no charge for this assessment.

 

If you are a Carer, please ask at the Reception Desk or telephone the surgery and ask for a Carers Identification and Referral Form, which you can complete to let us know about your caring responsibilities.
