Carers need supporting too!

 Caring for another person is not for everyone, but it can be incredibly rewarding. To light up another person’s day is one of the best feelings in life.

Too often, however, caring for others over a long period of time can come at a physical, emotional or financial cost… For some people, caring for another person can be all they have had time for, sometimes for many years.
