National Carers Week

National Carers Week

drop into Lakelands Hospice

 

In recognition and support of the amazing work carried out every day by carers Lakelands Hospice is holding a drop in session to offer help support and advice at the Hospice in Butland Road Corby on Monday 18th June between 10am and 3pm.

Support groups such as Northamptonshire Carers Association, Crossroads, MacMillan Welfare Rights and Northamptonshire Centre for Independent Living will be coming along to offer their expertise. 

A carer is anyone who provides unpaid support to a relative, partner, child or friend due to illness, disability, frailty, and mental health condition or substance misuse problem. 

Being a carer can be incredibly rewarding, but it can also feel relentless and leave carers feeling isolated and exhausted. 

Carers’ week – highlights the important role, played by unpaid friends and family members in caring for the elderly and the infirm and those with debilitating illness. 

Without people prepared to carry-out this tough and often thankless task, the costs of long-term care would fall on the National Health Service, where resources are already under strain. 

There are over six million carers from all walks of life, from stay-at-home parents, celebrities, and yes, even footballers. 

What they all have in common is their incredible hard work and dedication, many of them sacrificing all of their time to care for somebody in need. 

Please feel free to come along to the Hospice in Butland Road Corby on Monday 18th June between 10am and 3pm.
