Looking after someone

If you are one of the 32,000 people in Coventry looking after a friend or family member who cannot manage without support, you are a carer.  As a carer you may support someone emotionally, with personal care or household tasks, to get out and about, attend medical appointments, take medication or manage their finances.

Being a carer can be a demanding role and you may find that you need additional information, advice or support at some point. The information below gives guidance that may help you in your caring role, and information about how you can access further advice and support if needed. There are organisations that can provide information and advice to you, or support groups you may wish to attend. You can see all of these by clicking on the 'view all services' button on the left of this page.
