The theme for this year Carer`s week suggested by Carers UK is `In sickness and in Health`. The week is an opportunity for us to raise awareness of carers and carer issues and celebrate the valuable contribution that they make to society.
As a carer you may find that your caring role has an impact and this may cause stress and upset.
The Carer Support Team in Wolverhampton recognises how important it is that you as a carer look after your own health to enable to live a life of your own. One of the ways is to let your GP or any health professional working with you know that you are a carer.
