Often carers feel alone in their caring role with no-one to turn to.
It may be that they find it difficult to talk about their worries, concerns and frustrations; they may feel disloyal and uncomfortable to talk about their problems and feelings to someone who knows them and the person they support. For some it may give great satisfaction, but for others they may be experiencing feelings of loneliness, guilt, resentment, stress, depression, physical and mental exhaustion. Many continue for a number of years unaware that there is help available.
Carers don’t have to be alone - having someone to talk to can make all the difference to their all over wellbeing and quality of life. The aim is to ensure that no carer has to reach crisis point to get the support they need.
Telephone supporters provide a friendly ear, a companion, a friend. They are a link between the organisation and the person they support ensuring that the carer knows that they are not alone and that help is available.
