CARERS INFORMATION



Home

Are you or is someone you know looking after someone?


You may not see yourself as one, but if you are supporting a relative or friend of any age who fits one or more of the descriptions below, then you are a carer.

They:


The support you offer may be emotional or include shopping, cooking, dealing with medication, or attending medical appointments with the person you care for. The person you care for could live with you, in their own home or even in residential care.


We feel that 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.  We further believe 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 least, a listening ear when things get too much.


Support for Carers at Chilwell Valley and Meadows Medical Practice


Please let the practice team know if you are a Carer. You can do this by speaking to someone at reception.

The Carer Champion at Valley Surgery is Lynne Baxter and at Chilwell Meadows Surgery is Steph Flint.

Your Carer Champion is there to ensure you receive the support you are entitled to within your medical practice. They will also be able to support you to access information and support in your local area

Drop-in Sessions

Drop-in sessions are available on a monthly basis for carers. These 15 minute appointments provide you an opportunity to speak to a support worker from the Carers Federation for information, advice and support. Ask for the dates and locations for your next drop-in session. Please note, carers from all practices can attend any of the sessions, and they operate on a first come first served basis.
