Carers Week 2012

It was Carers Week 2012  18-24 June. The theme this year was “In Sickness and in Health”. The question asked of Carers was…how much does your caring role impact on your health and wellbeing? Are you worried that the cuts to services from statutory agencies and government will make you shoulder more of the burden?  Are you already feeling the effects of cuts to local services.


Does your GP know about your caring role and have you been offered health checks? If you work, is your employer sympathetic? Does your workplace recognise Carers Week? Carers organisations nationally would like to know your experiences – let them know.
