We are a team of health professionals who aim to promote the health and wellbeing of carers. We are a free service provided by Sussex Community NHS Trust providing support for carers over the age of 18 registered with a West Sussex GP. We work directly with carers and will develop individual strategies for each carer with an aim to reduce the strain of coping with their caring role. We may, if it is necessary, also look at the health needs of the person who is being cared for.
We work closely with other NHS specialist services, social & caring services and voluntary & community services and will link carers with these services when appropriate.
We can provide information and advice on specific health conditions, as well as practical advice on the caring environment (safe lifting and handling, healthy eating, risk minimisation)
We will visit carers in their own home at a time to suit their needs.
