Time out or a short break for you
What does it do?
There are a number of organisations in Bury that can provide services to help you to take some time off from your caring role. They offer information, advice and one-to-one or group support to carers and can act as a gateway to other services that can help carers to get the help and support they need.
There are a wide range of carers breaks services in Bury including:
- Sitting services that could include somebody to 'sit' with the person you care for, to enable you to have some time for yourself in the daytime or evening.
- Group meetings with other carers or organised activities.
- Additional support for the person you care for when you go away.
There are also a range of leisure and social activities that are aimed at carers, this could be anything from support groups and pamper days to craft sessions and coffee mornings.
