This is what a local carer told us about their experience of looking after someone they love.
82% of Warwickshire Carers told us they don’t spend enough time on their own health and wellbeing.
Key findings of the report:
- 239 Warwickshire residents shared their views with us about their caring roles.
- 52% of respondents told us they had to stop working or reduce their hours due to their caring role
- 82 people told us that ‘nothing’ had changed as a result of telling someone that they had caring responsibilities
If you help support someone either emotionally or physically, there is help available to you.
We are still interested to know how carers and people who provide support to a friend, relative or neighbour, look after themselves. We want to understand what support they need to manage their own health and wellbeing. Click on the link at the bottom of the page to talk to us.
Warwickshire County Council have a number of support services available to people who provide care. They want to make sure that their services are meeting carers' needs.
