Carers Support in Croydon.
Carers are people from all walks of life who provide unpaid care and support to a relative, friend or neighbour who can’t manage without their help.
Most carers don’t label themselves ‘carers’ – they are husbands, wives, sons, daughters or friends who see that someone is struggling with day-to-day life and do everything possible to help.
However, it is very common for people with caring responsibilities to neglect their own needs because they focus so much on helping the person they care for. If this sounds like you, Croydon Carers can help.
What Croydon Carers offer.
We provide a single point of contact for carers of any age to access the help, advice and practical support that you need.
Our support workers work with you to identify problems related to your caring responsibilities and to find potential solutions to them.
We can support you to have some time of your own, offer guidance with money matters separate from your caring responsibilities, if this is what you want to do.
Assessing Your Needs.
A Carer’s Assessment is when we meet you to find our what help you need.
You can have a Carer’s Assessment even if the person you care for doesn’t have services. It is not a judgement on how well you provide care, it’s just a chance to make sure you get all the help and information available.
If you feel you need some help or advice visit our Contact Us page for information about opening times and location.
