Looking after someone
Caring can be very stressful but you are not alone. At any one time in Oxfordshire, over 60,000 people are providing unpaid care for a family member, friend or neighbour. It is very important that you take time to look after yourself while you are caring for someone else.
You may not see yourself as a 'carer' - you see yourself as a son, daughter, partner, friend or neighbour. But if you regularly support and care for someone who could not manage without you then you are a carer and there is help available to support you to carry out this vital work.
More information and advice is available on the Carers Oxfordshire pages.
