Do you look after someone who, due to illness, frailty or disability, cannot manage without you? If so, you are a carer and support is available.
You may be caring for a relative, or a friend or neighbour. Perhaps you are supporting someone who has had a stroke, or someone with dementia, Parkinson’s, MS, a physical disability, a mental health illness, cancer, or a child with additional needs. Prospect House is working with Carers Bucks, your local carer support organisation, to support carers at the practice. Please make the surgery aware of your caring role so that you can go onto the carers’ register. This will enable staff to be aware of your caring situation and the challenges that can sometimes accompany that role.
In addition, you can pick up a registration form for Carers Bucks in the surgery waiting area. They will be able to offer you information, advice and guidance regarding your caring role, including what support is available locally. For more information, contact Carers Bucks on 0300 777 2722 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
