If you care for a person with a learning disability, whether it’s your son or daughter, brother or sister, parent, partner or other relative or friend, you are not alone
Family carers of people with learning disabilities are often unique amongst carers in that they will experience a lifetime of caring.
Negotiating the health, education and social care systems through infancy, childhood and adulthood can be a daunting task. Each stage can bring increased challenges and unwelcome changes for both you and your relative. This is where Carers in Bedfordshire can support you.
Carers in Bedfordshire has a range of options to support you, the carer. Register with us or visit the how we can help section to find out more
If the person you are caring for is struggling to cope by themselves, you can arrange a Needs Assessment from their local council. You can have a Carers Assessment at the same time. For further information about these assessments, click the link: Needs Assessment – Carers Assessment.
