Bedford Radio gave us the opportunity to be a part of two different podcasts during Carers Week this year.
Both share stories of carers in different but common situations.
Mental Health Carer Podcast
Dawn is a carer for her adult son who is suffering from mental health issues.
In the discussion with Dawn, they talk about her struggle to support her son and how it has led to her having to give up her work.
Parent Carer Podcast
Misbah is a parent carer for her son, aged 11, who has autism and dyspraxia.
They discuss the day-to-day life of caring for a child with additional needs and the pressue that it can put on the family.
