Carers information

Carers Information leaflet

Carers . . .

  • Look after someone – relative, friend, neighbour – who is ill, frail or disabled and cannot manage on their own.
  • Are unpaid and save the NHS in Wales over £7 billion every year.
  • Carers can live in the same house as the person they care for while others live nearby and visit regularly.
  • Care can be provided for limited periods of time or can be a regular part of life.
  • Some provide care for more than one person.
