Looking after someone

A carer is some who provides unwaged help and support to a parent, partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour.

The person they care for may need help due to age, physical or mental health, substance misuse or disability.

A carer does not always live with the person they care for, or care for them full time.

You might think of yourself as the person’s wife/husband/partner/parent, or their son/daughter etc., but recognising you are a carer means you are not alone.

There are estimated to be around 62,000 unwaged carers in Manchester. If you care for someone, there is help and support available.

With so many different sources of information and advice, the different options can seem overwhelming. We are here as the first point of contact, any questions you have no matter how big or small, are just a phone call or email away.
