Take a break from caring

What does it do?

Taking a break from your caring responsibilities is vital. Caring can be emotionally and physically demanding, so it’s important not to overlook your own needs.

We can help you have some much-deserved ‘time out’ in different ways, many of which are free to carers, even if the person you support has to fund their own care.

You may need to have a carer’s assessment before you can access the services, but please do not let that put you off. A carer’s assessment is not an assessment of the care you provide, but a conversation we have with you to discuss the support you provide, the impact it has on your life and to discuss how we can help.

To find out more or to ask for any of these services or to get other break ideas please contact the Carers Support Service at CRISP.
