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. This year we will be hosting our Carers Tea on Friday June 14th. If you are a carer or are someone who has a carer and would like to attend, please let us know at the surgery.

If you are a carer or know someone who is, and would like more information, support and guidance, please visit our page, Carers Direct, or visit the Carers Trust website.
