Do you voluntarily look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill?
If so, you are are a Carer and we would like to support you.
We are interested in identifying voluntary Carers who are registered at Winch Lane Surgery, especially those people who may be caring without help or support.
As a Carer, you are entitled to have your needs assessed by Pembrokeshire County Council’s Social Care & Services. A Carer’s Assessment is a chance to talk about your needs as a Carer and the possible ways help can be given to you. It also looks at the needs of the person you care for. There is no charge for an assessment.
If you are a voluntary Carer, please telephone or call into the Surgery and ask at Reception for a Carer’s Identification and Referral Form which you can complete to let us know about your caring responsibilities.
For more information please visit the Pembrokeshire County Council website for up to date carers information.
Are you an unpaid carer? A carer is someone who is looking after a family member, partner or friend who cannot manage without help because of illness, frailty, disability, mental health issues or substance misuse. It is important that carers recognise their role and access any advice or support which will help them continue in their caring role. Register with us at the surgery and you will be able to access whole range of infromation which is specifically tailored to meet your needs. Some useful information is provided below. The Pembrokeshire Carers Information and Support Serivce is now available from Hafal Crossroads.
