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:
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.
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.
To benefit from a break, you must become a member of ‘mytime’.
We have had so much positive feedback from carers who have been on one of our ‘mytime’ breaks.
