Carers' health and wellbeing

Carers' health and wellbeing


You can find up to date COVID-19 advice for unpaid carers during the pandemic on the Scottish Government website, covering topics including staying safe, accessing PPE and testing and short breaks. Everyone should follow NHS Inform’s public health advice on how to protect yourselves and others during the pandemic.

Caring for someone can be rewarding, but when you're coping day to day and responding to the needs of others, it's easy to forget your own health needs.

It's important to think about your health and wellbeing too.

VOCAL's video below describes the stress carers can feel.
