Wake up to caring
Today, one in ten of us is a carer. That's nearly seven million people! So even if you aren't a carer yourself, it's likely you know someone who needs the support of Carers Trust.
Anyone could be a carer. They might be:
- Anita - she is 54 and cares for her mother and father who both have dementia.
- Jessica - a 10 year old young carer who cares for her father who has a physical disability
- Matt - is a young adult carer aged 19. He cares for his brother Luke, 17, who has severe Autism, Klinefelter syndrome and epilepsy.
- Sylvie - is 37 and cares for her son Imohtep, eight, and her two other sons. Imohtep has a rare chromosome disorder.
- Yewande - a 50 year old mother caring for her son Gbenga who has Down's syndrome
