Carers can now book appointments with Carers Resource at Dyneley House Surgery. A carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a friend, neighbour or relative who could not manage otherwise because of frailty, illness or disability. They may even be juggling paid work with caring responsibilities at home. Carers have a tough job – it can mean unrelenting pressure, little chance to relax and a lot of worry. The system is complicated, and the issue is hidden. The Carers Resource Charity provide support for carers, no matter what their age, race, religion or needs. For more information, call Carers Resource on 01756 700888
