I need some emotional support
Sometimes caring can feel overwhelming, challenging and isolating. Sometimes it can bring about feelings such as guilt or sadness. Sharing those feelings and speaking to someone who will listen can go a long way in addressing any caring-related issues.
The Gloucestershire Carers Hub team have been trained to help Carers going through emotional distress as a result of their caring role.
“You are not alone”
Caring can be exhausting and a 24/7 role in which many Carers can feel ground down by daily tasks. We will listen to you and try to find suggestions and solutions that are right for you. Many of the Hub team have lived experience as a Carer so really can understand where you are coming from.
The Gloucestershire Carers Hub has a Health and Wellbeing Service which can deliver emotional support to Carers. This can range from one-to-one Wellbeing sessions through to Counselling and an Emotional Wellbeing Pathways service for Carers who are no longer caring. The Health and Wellbeing service can also signpost you to a more relevant service if necessary.
We put the emphasis on what our Carers want and work with our partners to ensure that Carers are more supported and understood with a personalised plan for each Carer.
