Support for carers
All carers can feel isolated by their responsibilities. It is important for you to know that there are many other people going through similar feelings and situations. It may be helpful for you to go to a support group, where you can meet other carers and discuss your experiences. There are many of these groups all over Leeds, a number of which are specifically for carers of older people. There is also practical help available for matters like benefits.
It is also important to know what to do in an emergency, if you are caring for another person, and there are groups, schemes and organisations in place for you to turn to if you feel you urgently need help
