There are a huge number of carers in the UK, and more specifically Llanelli, who are caring for a loved one, be this through choice or necessity.
It can be a difficult and demanding job, but there is help there for you. If you are a carer, please let us know – we may be able to help you.
Support for carers
It is important to remember to take care of yourself as well as the person you are caring for. Make sure to take regular breaks and time for yourself.
Reach out to family, friends, and other carers for support when you need it. There are also organisations that provide support for carers. They can provide advice and guidance on a range of issues, from financial matters to emotional wellbeing. Remember, you are not alone and there is help and support available to you.
There is a wealth of information on the NHS website about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.
