The reasons that someone may need help or care are wide and varied therefore the role of an Adult Carer can differ greatly.
There are many common issues that all carers have to deal with such as time management, dealing with carer stress/anxiety and increased financial pressures.
Similarly there are other situations which can be unique. For example, lifting and carrying can be needed when looking after someone with a physical disability. For some this can lead to significant back pains and problems.
Often carers will just get on with things without giving any thought to their own health and safety.
We hold regular Carers Forums across Allerdale and Copeland, each one focusing on a different impact of caring.
The forums give you the opportunity to hear from guest speakers, learn more about local support organisations and meet other carers dealing with similar issues and problems.
You will also be able to have a chat with one of our Support Workers and enjoy a lovely lunch and refreshments!
At our next forums we will be discussing Continence and Tissue Viability.
Lets talk…Continence and Incontinence
Continence care helps people to achieve and maintain control of their bladder or bowel functions. This can include tips on keeping the bladder healthy, continence assessment, identifying a course of treatment if necessary and emotional support and advice.
Lets talk…Tissue Viability and how to prevent pressure ulcers
Pressure ulcers are an injury that breaks down the skin and underlying tissue. They are caused when an area of skin is placed under pressure. They are sometimes known as 'bedsores' or 'pressure sores'.
