Caring means different things for every carer. What it involves will vary according to the needs of the person you’re caring for and what you’re able to do.
Caring can mean:
It’s important to understand the needs of the person, and to find a good balance between what you think is right for them and what they want. You should also try to be aware of the limitations of what you can and can’t do.
Remember that you don’t have to do everything yourself. There’s lots of help and support available|.
