What is a carer?

If you look after a spouse or partner, parent, brother or sister, adult son or daughter, other relative or friend who is ill or disabled and who would not be able to live in the community without your help then you are a carer. Carers can be from any section of the community and from any culture.


Are You a Carer? Young or Old ? Or do you have a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we can help- we offer Carer health checks at flexible times to suit you and we offer free flu vaccinations

If you would like to receive our information packs please let us know and we can pass the information direct to you.

Lancashire Carers Services visit our surgery usually on the first Thursday of every month to promote the services and support available to carers. Take a look at the service they provide by clicking on the link below check with us for weekly times before you visit
