A carer is a person who takes unpaid responsibility for the physical and/or mental well-being of someone who cannot perform the task of daily living unaided, because of age, disability, or mental distress.
If you are the main carer for someone please let us know so that we may register this on your record. We will also give you information about support available through Rushcliffe CCG.
If you know of any adult or child who cares for another member of their family, and you believe they may not be aware that help is available, please ask at reception for further details or see below for details of the Carers Federation.
Our "Carers Champion" at East Bridgford Medical Centre is Denise Birch who is part of our reception team. Denise is able to provide information regarding the Carers Federation and drop in session dates.
The Carers Federation - Our Services
Carers Federation offers a diverse range of expertly tailored services to individuals and the wider community.
As a Company Limited by Guarantee, we are reassuringly governed by a Board of Trustees who are themselves either carers, former carers or people who have been supported by similar services in past. As you can imagine, this goes a long way in helping make sure we are offering the right services to those who need them most.
With a purposeful commitment to continuous improvement, we have gained a growing nationwide reputation for the excellence of our work, operating within the framework of iSO9000:2008.
We believe that everyone’s individual circumstances are indeed that, and should not be compared to anyone else’s. That is why we are sensitive, as well as pertinent to the needs of individuals and communities.
