Improved in Their Stress Levels

Cares for their son who has a brain injury and ADHD. They care 24/7 and have been caring for over 40 years.

The Carer applied for Short Breaks funding to go on a holiday to visit family that they hadn’t seen for  over 20 years. The grant was awarded and once care had been put in place for their son, they were able to go on the holiday.

Since receiving the funding their there has been little change to their wellbeing and ability to cope because of the demanding role they have. However  initially there was an improvement in their stress levels and they felt carefree whilst they were away.
