Aberdeen Carers Support Service

													

Aberdeen Carers Support Service offers information and advice based on individual circumstances, because we know each caring role is unique.

You might have been caring for a week, a year or ten years when you come through our door and ask to be recognised as a carer. This first conversation can be difficult and emotional, which is why our staff team consists of highly trained and knowledgeable people who can walk you through this experience with care and compassion.

We will chat with you about the person you care for, what you do in your caring role, what you may have given up, how you are feeling and any negative impact your caring role has had on your health and wellbeing. You may simply be looking for training or a copy of the carers’ newsletter and may not feel you need a lot of support. You can be registered at any point in your caring experience. If there are areas in your life that you are not managing, we will offer the training and support that you need. There is no threshold for entry into receiving support. If you would like to talk about your caring role, please get in touch.

What to expect

For any carer getting in touch, your first point of contact will be the person who looks at your referral. Once it is established that you are a carer, we will talk you through registering for support and what this can look like.

We will link you with a Carer Advisor or Family Wellbeing Worker, your needs will be assessed, and an Adult Carer Support Plan will be offered to you. We know Aberdeen well and will look to the area that you live in to work with you to identify local support and services.

Carers can have many choices and decisions to make and some of the more common enquiries relate to:

The importance of respite

Financial support

The needs of specific conditions

What to do when a person is discharged from hospital

We’ll continue to add to our resources section with practical help and support.
