Are you a Carer?

Are you a Carer?

A carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a partner, child or neighbour, who could not manage without help. This could be due to age, physical or mental illness, disability or addiction. A carer may be a child, young person or an adult.

We are interested in identifying carers, especially those people who may be acring without help or support. We know that carers are often 'hidden' looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer.

Caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community which is often a 24 hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the carer. Carers should receive appropriate support by way of access to accurate information on a range of topics such as entitlement to benefits and respite care and not least a listening ear when things become too much.

If you are a carer you are also entitled to have a Carers Assessment which provides a chance to talk about your needs as a carer and the possible ways help can be given. It also looks at the needs of the person for whom you are caring for. There is no charge for this assessment.

Please contact reception if you are a carer and we can update our records and provide you with some relevant information regarding national and local support services.

If you would like any further information please speak to one of our Carer Champions who are here to offer in-house support and signpost you to relevant services. Please ask to speak to one of our Carer Champions, Justine or Valerie or ask a member of our reception team.

 

Dementia Friendly

Aspley Medical Centre is working towards becoming a Dementia Friendly Practice to ensure we provide accessible care and support for our patients with dementia.

Our practice is working towards:

  • Ensuring appointments are flexible and meet the needs of the patient
  • Put appropriate consent procedures in place
  • use computer systems to assist in monitoring
  • Respect carers as a key partner in the patient's journey
  • Value the views of patient's and carers within the practice
  • Provide appropriate dementia training for our practice staff
  • Commit to the development of a dementia-friendly culture in the practice
  • Ensure the practice is part of a dementia-friendly community
  • Ensure patients receive a timely diagnosis
  • Ensure care plans are integral to the overall care of the patient
  • Ensure post-diagnosis support is a key component of follow-up care
  • Ensure the physical environment and practice layout allows the patient to navigate the building independently
  • Ensure patients are comfortable with and within the physical environment
