Many people who care for someone else do not even think of themselves as a carer. And yet a carer could be anyone, from the 85-year-old husband caring for his wife with Dementia to the 18-year-old looking after his Mum with a long-term illness. The point is, a carer can look like and be anyone.
At Carers Support West Sussex, we recognise caring can be both wonderful and tough. Because of this, we are here to help you:
No matter where you live in West Sussex
No matter what your caring role
No matter what is happening even in a global pandemic
No matter what your age, gender, sexuality or ethnic origin…
…we are with you.
One size doesn’t fit all, as there are so many different roles a carer can take on. Because caring cannot be put on pause, the effects can be hard hitting. We want you to push past the fear of feeling as though you are incapable or thinking that everyone else is coping. We can guide you on how best to cope without any judgement.
Right now, we know that things are harder than ever, with the Covid-19 pandemic placing additional pressures. No matter what your caring situation, we offer a kind and listening ear. Let us help you get the support you need, whether you have recently become a carer or have been taking care of someone for years. We will provide you with relevant information and guidance along with practical, including grants and free equipment, and emotional support. Always at the right time and in the right manner.
