Connect with carers like you
Being a carer can often be lonely and isolating, with little time to socialise and do the things you enjoy. You may feel like your life is very different from other people’s and that no one understands how you feel.
By talking to other carers, you can give and receive advice from people in a similar situation who understand.
You can read real stories here about how, as a carer, they’ve made simple changes to feel the best they can.
Best-You is a FREE app and website that you can use to explore your own health and wellbeing and make small changes that are important and realistic for you.
It is also a safe space to connect with like-minded people by joining the private group called ‘Carers in Coventry’, join it here.
You can share experiences and get non-judgemental advice as and when you need it - at home from your phone, tablet or computer.
Important information for you...
Many people who care for someone else are not aware of their entitlements – and some don’t see themselves as a carer at all.
It’s important that you know what benefits you can receive, from financial support to practical help and time off caring. Knowing that there is help and support available helps to give peace of mind.
