Health Talk Online have produced six videos of carers sharing advice for other carers. Some of the issues explored are:

  • the extreme feelings experienced by carers
  • the cost to the carer's health 
  • how others do not understand the caring role
  • the benefits of talking with other carers
  • maintaining a caring role once the person is in care
  • ensuring knowledge is passed on to the care staff
  • how the carer is the expert - their voice must be heard
  • being prepared to challenge and speak up if necessary
  • carers need for a checklist of information from day one
