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.
