Take care of carers

Published Apr 16th 2012

Charity Vitalise recently published a report revealing that many of the six million people who voluntarily look after relatives, friends, children or older people who are sick or disabled “do not consider themselves to be carers because they do not get paid for the work they do.”  The danger of such a situation is that the majority of carers in informal arrangements “do not realise that they can take advantage of the many services available to enable them to recharge their batteries every now and again.”  The full Press Association article is available from Age UK here.
