Carers hold families together often making sacrifices to ensure that the care of their loved ones is paramount. Although it is a very rewarding role, it can also take its toll on the carer’s mental, physical and social wellbeing.
If you are a carer, taking a break can have a massive impact on you as it will help you feel more energised and could prevent you becoming exhausted or unwell.
If you care for someone over the age of 18, ‘mytime’ may be able to help you access a much needed break from you demanding caring role.
Take a look at the sections below to find out more:
To benefit from a break, you must become a member of ‘mytime’.
We have been listening to carers and as a result we have been working hard to develop a whole range of different opportunities to fit around your caring role.
We have had so much positive feedback from carers who have been on one of our ‘mytime’ breaks.
Naheed has benefited from Mytime, with an afternoon tea experience and a trip to Aintree Racecourse.
Sue is a carer who uses Mytime to have some time time herself, away from her husband and son who she cares for at home.
Jack is a full time carer for his wife and has been supported by Mytime.
Barbara is a carer who has been supported by Mytime.
The ‘mytime’ team love seeing carers taking part in the breaks we offer and it makes it all worthwhile when we get to read your comments and experiences.
