Help for Carers
Our Place understands the importance of caring in today’s society and that’s why we’ve dedicated an entire section to something which will affect all of us at some point in our lives.
In the Help for Carers section, Our Place explains what caring is and helps identify a care need, we offer practical advice and inform what you are entitled to if you become a carer.
Our Place are aware that becoming a carer is not something that can be easily prepared for and we offer an explanation of how it could affect your life and we show you how to look after yourself as a carer.
It would be remiss of Our Place to say caring is easy, and that’s why we are here to help when times are tough. We recommend using Our Place’s support system to help you through.
We have top tips for when you’re feeling low, while you can also call upon an expanding network of fellow-carers in the Our Place forum. We have also compiled a selection of case-studies and testimonials of like-minded people in situations similar to you because we believe working as a community is the best way to live.
