Disabled Access/Carers

It is possible to access the building in a wheelchair from the front  entrance. Disabled parking facilities are available at the front of the building in the car park. We have a portable loop system available for those with hearing aids. Please advise the receptionist if you would like to use this service.

DO YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE WHO IS ILL, FRAIL, DISABLED OR MENTALLY ILL?

We are interested in identifying carers, especially those people who may be caring without help or support. We know that carers are often “hidden” looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer.

Caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community, which is often a 24-hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the carer. Carers should receive appropriate support by way of access to accurate information on a range of topics such as entitlement to benefits and respite care and not least, a listening ear when things get too much.

As a Carer, you are also entitled to have your needs assessed by Adult Care Services. A Carer’s Assessment is a chance to talk about your needs as a carer and the possible ways help could be given. It also look at the needs of the person you care for. There is no charge for an assessment.

If you are a carer, please ask at Reception for a

CARERS IDENTIFICATION AND REFERRAL FORM

which you can complete to let us know about your caring responsibilities
