You may be a carer
A carer is someone who provides help or support to a partner, relative, child, friend or neighbour who could not manage without their help due to physical or mental illness, disability, frailty or addition. There are thousands of unpaid carers in Sussex.
Anyone can become a carer - children, parents, daughters, sons, spouses, partners and friends. Many people don't think of themselves as carers; they just look after someone close to them.
Caring often just happens to you, as you find that someone close to you gradually needs more help.
Support for you
Becoming a carer can feel isolating and it's often a struggle to get the information you need.
When you are looking after someone, it's important to have some help and support for yourself, such as a break from caring. Carers Support West Sussex is a local organisation that can provide you with information and advice on any aspect of caring and services that might be useful. They can put you in touch with other organisations that offer specialist support, for example about dementia, mental health problems or recovering from a stroke
