OPINION: Value of carers
IN RECOGNITION of Carer's Week it is time to acknowledge and support the role of carers in the community.
Life can change without notice and many people are thrust into a position of caring for a loved one.
This can often be a challenging responsibility, which can impact a person in many different ways.
Carers need to develop coping strategies and seek help at appropriate times to avoid extra strain in their own lives.
Let us value the contribution of carers.
