New service launched to support carers

A new carer’s support service has been launched providing information about the services available to carers.

The service will offer support to carers, taking time to listen to their needs and sign posting them to relevant support in the community.

The free service based at the hospital is available to anyone connected to Poole Hospital –for example, a carer visiting the cared for person, staff who may also may be a carer or the carer being in hospital themselves. This service can be accessed via phone, email, promotional event, or 1-1 meetings.

lizzie adamsCarer support advisor Elizabeth Adams said: “The amount of information for carers can be overwhelming, we aim to inform and support carers in their choices, let them know what help is available, if they need it in the future.

"There is a lot of information and support out there and we hope the new service will be of value.”
