Advocacy for older carers
Older carers of adults with learning disability or autism can sometimes find it difficult to deal with the challenges of ensuring they, and the adult they care for, receive the care and support needed to live full and independent lives.
Getting older may mean that you find it harder to provide the care you know your loved one needs or speak up for youself and your family when you need to. There may be services or benefits you are entitled to that you are not aware of.
Our advocacy service for older carers can give you the support you need to deal with any issues or concerns you have.
Not sure what advocacy is, or how an advocate can help you? Find out more.
Our trained advocates will listen to you and provide you with the information you need to sort out any problems you are facing. We will support you to access any help or advice you need from other organisations such as Adult Social Services or the Department for Work and Pensions.
Our aim is to give you the confidence and knowledge to continue to care for your son or daughter in a way that is right for you and your family.
If you are aged 60 or over and care for an adult with a learning disability or autism our service is here to help you.
