1 in 5 of us is a carermore
If you help look after a family member, friend or neighbour and they cannot manage without your help then you are a carer.
Caring for someone else's needs can be both very stressful and isolating. There are services available to help you and other carers across Shropshire look after their own needs as well as the needs of those you care for.
There may be more than one person caring within a family and carers can be of any age.
The Carers Support Service in Shropshire has recently moved to Carers Trust 4 All and you can contact them on 03333 231990
