Southbroom Surgery is working together with Carers Support Wiltshire to offer support to patients of any age who have caring responsibilities.
Do you look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled, has mental health problems or misuses drugs or alcohol are you parents of children with learning difficulties a young person looking after parents or other family members. Do you provide support to a relative, partner, neighbour or friend? Many people do not see themselves as carers they are simply someone's parent, child or friend.
Caring can be a 24/7 job that can be demanding and isolating. Carers Support Wiltshire can connect you with the relevant organisations and support networks. They offer advice and you will receive regular information sent directly to you.
Complete a carer’s form obtained from reception, we will update your records and with your consent pass your information onto Carers Support Wiltshire. All registered carers can pre-book appointments for themselves and the person they look after.
Young Carers are children and young people between 5-25 years who help care for family members who may be ill, have a physical or mental disability, or drug or alcohol problem.
There is an online-based community for young carers to chat and discuss with others similar to them or to speak with a qualified youth worker.
Carers Support Wiltshire welcomes carers who have lost the person for whom they cared for.
