Are you a Carer?
Family carers are people who, without payment, look after relatives, friends or neighbours who could not manage alone due to illness, disability, old age, mental health needs or substance dependency.
Despite their huge voluntary contribution to society many family carers experience significant disadvantages as a result of their caring role.
Croft Medical Centre is working in partnership with The Warwickshire Carer Wellbeing Service to ensure this does not happen to our patients.
