Advice for carers

If you look after somebody with an incurable illness, we can offer advice about getting all the help you need in your caring role including:

  • carer’s assessment – a chance for you to talk to us about your caring role so we can check that you’re getting all the help you need
  • emergency support – if you’re worried about what would happen if you were involved in an emergency and couldn’t provide care, you can register with the Carers Respite Emergency Service (CRESS)
  • a break from caring – home-based respite gives you the chance to have some time for yourself. Visit the doctor, get your hair done, or go on a training course.
