Carers in the Community

The Carer’s Trust defines a carer as ‘anyone, including children and adults, who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support’ and notes that ‘the care they give is unpaid’.

Carers are fundamental to some of our patients’ lives, providing them with the care and support they need on a daily basis. The life of a carer is incredibly rewarding but can also leave carers themselves needing an extra helping hand.

At the Spinney, we strive to support carers in the community and provide them with the help they need to give the best care possible and also to take care of themselves. To celebrate the work carers do in St Ives, every year we host the Carers Tea as part of National Carers Week which allows carers and those they care for to come enjoy an afternoon tea with activities and entertainment to give them the respite they deserve. In 2019, we hosted our Carers Tea on Friday June 14th with roughly 50 carers and those that they care for attending on the day. It was a huge success and we thank all those who were involved in organising the event for their hard work up to and on the day.

We have also been awarded the Carers Friendly Tick for Healthcare by Caring Together which recognises us as a practice who go above and beyond for the carers in our community to help support them however we can. For more information about the Carers Friendly Tick, please click here.

If you are a carer or know someone who is, and would like more information, support and guidance, please fill in your details below and we will get in touch. You can also visit our Carers Direct page or visit the Carers Trust website.
