Caring for a family member or loved one is a very generous and selfless thing to do and it can be extremely rewarding. However, taking on such a physically and emotionally demanding role can also take its toll.
Being a carer can affect your health, leave you feeling isolated and often means you need to put your own life on hold. It can be a thankless job that is overlooked, but it is an important job and you continue to do it for the person you love.
At Making Space we understand the stress and pressures of being a carer. Our carer support workers can offer advice on everything from finance and welfare to medication and possible side effects. Our teams can also provide or signpost Carers to a range of local activities and support groups, including peer support and leisure and social activities and we can even offer the chance to rest and recuperate by taking a carer break.
Making Space work to support every indviudal and are flexible to their needs.
