carers week logoDuring National Carers’ week we must all consider the importance of family and friend carers taking a break. The ‘Respite Care at Home – Caring for the Caregivers’ is a recommended read.

In the UK 6.5 million people are involved in caring for a loved one. During this week’s national Carers’ Week the emphasis turns to the needs of the carer, the help they so desperately need and the importance of taking time away from their care duties to refresh and reenergise.
