Who are you caring for?

  • Someone Elderly

    Our population is ageing rapidly, and many people look after older or frail family members or friends.

  • Someone With Dementia

    Caring for a person living with dementia can be stressful and lonely at times.

  • Someone With A Disability

    The needs of people living with a disability are diverse, and every situation is different.

  • Someone With An Alcohol Or Drug Related Problem

    Caring for someone with an alcohol or drug addiction can be difficult to deal with on your own.

  • Someone With Ongoing Ill-Health

    Caring for someone with an ongoing illness such as dementia or cancer can be challenging and emotionally draining.

  • Someone With A Terminal Illness

    Looking after a person who is dying can be stressful and distressing, and you may need help and support.

  • Someone With A Mental Health Condition

    Mental health conditions vary, and supporting a person with a mental health condition can be overwhelming and confusing.

Are you under 25 and looking after a Family Member or Friend?
