An unpaid family carer is someone who looks after a member of their family or a friend who is ill, frail or disabled; this includes mental health & substance misuse. We look at reducing the impact of care - we cannot take away the caring responsibilities or provide personal care, but we can work with the carer to improve their well-being & help to reduce the pressure/challenges of their caring role.
