Are you a carer?

If you feel cut off from the information you desperately need, stressed, isolated or overwhelmed in you caring role and live in the Redditch area, then Carers Careline aims to help you tackle all these issues and more.

With an ever ageing population many people find themselves exchanging the role of caring for their children to that of caring for their parents – sometimes both at the same time. Often the situation creeps up on people without their realising. Some people initially deny being a carer because they see it as their duty to look after their loved one. Another common problem can be the feeling of isolation, of being the only one in that position, of not knowing who to ask for help. Add all these things together: stress, duty, love, isolation, ignorance and you get a complete mix of issues that can have a great impact on an individual.
