Health & Wellbeing Improved

Cares for their son, who suffers from mental health issues and does not realise when he is in dangerous situations. They care for him 24/7 and have been caring for over 16 years.The Carer applied for Short Breaks funding to purchase a tablet to enable them to have time to themselves, improve their computer skills, feel a sense of accomplishment and be able to communicate with friends and family whilst in their caring role.

The grant was awarded and the Carer received their tablet and was delighted. Since then they have said time and again how much they appreciate the funding and having the tablet which is theirs alone and gives them time to themselves.

Whilst involved on their tablet they are not worrying. Their own health & wellbeing improved as did their ability to continue in their caring role, where previously they had been struggling.
