Carers Identification and Referral

Identificaton and help and support for carers

Are you a Carer?

Do you look after a family member or friend who is unwell, disabled, frail or mentally ill?

If so, you are a carer and we would like to support you. Please complete our carers referral form.

Once you are added to our list of carers we will know about your busy life as a carer, which can affect your health. We can also try and be flexible with appointments etc as we will know about your commitments.

We work closely with Angus Carers, the local Carer Centre and part of the Princess Royal Trust for Carers network. With your permission, we can refer you to have your needs assessed by Adult Care Services. A carer's assessment is a chance to talk about your needs as a carer and the possible ways help could be given. It can also look at the needs of the person you care for. This could be done separately, or together, depending on the situation. There is no charge for an assessment. For more information please see the Angus Carers website.
