Parents – you care for someone but who cares for you? Good news – we do!
Would you like to talk to someone about how caring affects you? Your needs and a life for yourself are important too. Here at Carers Trust Solihull we are carrying out a dedicated support planning service for parents, this will enable you to take a step back, look at your caring role and explore and access support that is personal to you and the areas of your life that might be affected by caring.
Having a parent carer assessment is a wonderful service. Chloe was so kind and understanding and gave me so much support and help. When I have my plan through Chloe had a comprehensive list of support and help for me to look into.
I found the Solihull Carers Trust of great help to provide a non – judgemental ear and offer advice on what other help is out there for what can often feel like an isolating and exhausting experience as a carer
Parent Carers Support Planning Service
One of our friendly Assessment Workers will meet with you in your home or at a location of your choice, to help work out what support is available to you. Don’t be put off by the word ‘assessment’. It is not a test about how good you are at caring. It is to work out what can be done to make life easier for you.
It is for YOU and YOUR needs and will give you an opportunity to discuss areas such as:
- Your health
- Your feelings
- Time to yourself, hobbies and interests
- Opportunities to access work, training or education
- Running and managing the home
