Support for Carers
Support For Carers
Salford Heart Care supports heart patients, their carers and families.
As someone with a heart condition, you may rely on a partner, relative, friend or neighbour for help and support. But do you ever worry that although they do a great job of looking after you, they don’t always think about their own health?
The fact is, many carers are so concerned about the person they look after that they may be neglecting their own health. That’s why NHS Salford, in partnership with Salford Carers Centre, would like you to encourage the person who looks after you to have a Carers Health Check.
Some carers are missing out on benefits and services too
Salford Carers Centre can provide free Carers Information Packs. The packs tell carers about benefits and services they could be entitled to as a carer. They can also ring Salford Carers Centre if they want to speak in confidence to a Carers Support Worker.
What should the person who cares for you do next?
Request a free Carers Information Pack from Salford Carers Centre on 0161 833 0217 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
