Are you a carer?
Do you look after someone who could not manage without your help?
Do you regularly collect and/or administer medication?
Do you help someone with washing and dressing?
Do you do shopping, cooking or cleaning for someone who can't do it for themselves?
Do you provide emotional support to someone?
No matter your age, you might be a carer if you support a friend, family member or neighbour who has an illness, disability, addiction, physical or mental health problem.
Many people do not recognise themselves as carers and miss out on valuable support available to them.
The Health and Social Care Partnership and the South Ayrshire Carers Centre offer a wide range of support, including emotional support, short breaks and general advice.
