Getting care and support

No one person can do it all. Caring is very hard work – physically and emotionally.

Getting care and support might mean you can spend more quality time with people close to you, and might give you a chance to take a break from your caring role and do something you enjoy.

There are different options for getting care and support for you and for the person you care for, such as through an assessment of your needs from the local council/trust, or by finding care and support yourself. This section explores these options in more detail.

The information on getting care and support can vary depending on whether you live in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Each page in this section explains which nation(s) it covers.
