Who do we support
It is important the unpaid carer completes the form relevant to the county they live in. The forms can be accessed here: https://hduhb.nhs.wales/healthcare/services-and-teams/carers-information/
The form also gives the carer the opportunity to be referred to their local Carers Information Service. Feedback from unpaid carers on the benefits of this include:
Before a referral: I look after my husband who has Alzheimer’s and felt isolated, depressed and lonely. I was struggling to care for him on my own.
After: I am now in receipt of three hours replacement care a week. My husband spends time each week at a day centre. The carers service also helped me to apply for attendance allowance which I can use to employ a cleaner.
