You may not know that you are a carer. Ann realised she wasn’t coping and didn’t know enough about life from her son’s perspective. Ann shares her story and the difference asking for help has made to her.
If you are already in contact with social work services, you should direct any questions you have to the care manager who is supporting the person you are caring for.
If there is no social work contact they should call Angus Carers Centre on 01241 439157.
If you are in contact with a family where you believe there is a family member or friend supporting someone who cannot cope on their own, please encourage them to come forward for support or you can make a referral to us on their behalf (with their consent). This can be done easily through our website at www.anguscarers.org.uk.
You can find out more about our “Referral Pathway” here.
Although most of our staff are working from home they are still supporting carers across Angus.
“Support is only a phone call away”
