Also in September:
Throughout Grampian, over 40,000 people provide unpaid care for relatives, neighbours and friends. Three out of every five of us will take on a caring role at some point in our lives. While fulfilling their invaluable role, the needs of carers themselves for support and for information may all-too-easily remain hidden. The importance and benefits of recognising and meeting these needs cannot be underestimated.
NHS Grampian has recently updated its Carers' Information Strategy, which is now available to download through the link below:
This strategy seeks to build on the good work already evident across Grampian, and to ensure that identifying carers and giving them information is routine practice for NHS Grampian.
Do you look after someone? If you do, then you are a carer and this leaflet (pdf) may be helpful to you.
