Carers Needs

  • Information, advice and encouragement

  • Recognition and respect

    Carers have a great deal of knowledge and experience to offer to support social care

  • To be involved in care planning

    (as we are inevitably involved in delivery)

  • Effective access to the team

    Not only to seek advice but the convey information and take part in discussions

  • Listen to us and see us as partners in care

Partnership with carers is…

  • Listening and caring
  • Providing information that supports care
  • Seeking their views and acting on them
  • Seeking partnerships as a two-way process
  • Sharing Information
  • Understanding ‘family’
  • Carers as part of a team
  • Recognition & respect
