When your caring role comes to an end


Looking after someone may be a big part of your life, but it is likely that your caring role will change over time.

Your role might change because the person you cared for:

  • has recovered and no longer needs care
  • can no longer be cared for at home
  • has passed away

Whatever your situation is, you are not alone. It will be difficult, but you can find help and support.

If the person you look after is unable to look after themselves safely and you can't provide the care they need, please let us know as soon as possible.

There are other options which can be put in place to help reduce or take over your caring role.

To talk about your options please contact the Let's Talk Team on 0191 424 6000.
