    With a Little Help… How family and friends can support a Carer

    This booklet is for the family and friends of a Carer: to help you support someone you know who is caring for someone else.

    Many Carers say that they sometimes experience a sense of isolation – that those around them, family and friends, can’t quite ‘get’ what it is that the Carer is going through.

     

    Carers we have spoken with said that they wished there was some information available to their family and friends that would help them understand and better support the Carer. Here you will find information and practical ideas to support a Carer in their important role.
