Bolton Carers Support

Are you looking after someone? Do you care for a family member or friend who is elderly, ill or who has a disability?

Then you are one of over 30,000 unpaid carers in Bolton. Caring for someone can be very rewarding and satisfying. At times, though, it can be exhausting and stressful.

We, your GP practice, want to ensure that all patients who look after a relative, friend or neighbour, receive the help and support they are entitled to. We are working with Bolton Carers Support to do this.

Please let our reception team know if you are a carer. This will allow us to contact you, when necessary, with information on services available to you, such as the annual flu vaccine or an annual carer's health check.

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
