Carers

Do you look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill?

 If so, you may be a carer and you are entitled to receive support by way of access to accurate information on a range of topics such as entitlement to benefits and respite care and not least, a listening ear when things get too much.

Carers can often be “hidden” looking after friends or family and as it is a 24 hour job it can be very demanding and isolating for the carer.

As a carer, you are also entitled to have your needs assessed, free of charge, by Adult Care Services. This 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.

If you are a carer, please ask at reception for a carers identification and referral form, which you can complete to let us know about your caring responsibilities and information about Greenwich Carers.  Alternatively, click on the link below to download and complete the form.  Once completed, please bring into either surgery.
