John cares for his wife who has complex physical health issues including osteoarthritis and short term memory loss caused by a stroke. John felt that his wife was not getting the support she needed and he took it all on himself. Finding time and allowing himself a break was proving hard and John was missing his friends and fly fishing.
With help from us he now has a regular break for three hours a week which he is using to enjoy his old hobby. When told, John was over the moon,
“This has come at just the right time for me – thank you so much for this good news. You don’t know how much difference this will make to me”.
Here’s some more examples of how we use donations we receive:
- £10 could help a young adult carer (16-25) pay for transport to meet up with friends
- £20 could provide a trip to the cinema for two Young Adult Carers to enjoy time with their friends and a break from their caring role.
- £30 means that an older male carer can attend a cookery class to learn vital cookery skills, meet others in a similar situation to them and learn how to prepare healthy and nutritious food to be enjoyed with friends and family for years to come.
- £50 will help a carer who feels isolated and lonely a vital break from their caring role, whether that’s going swimming, taking the kids to a football match or going to an art class with friends.
- £100 could help a carer on the brink of crisis speak to a trained counsellor.
