**Raising Awareness**
CARERS WEEK 11th June - 17th June 2018. 

Bluebird Care Birmingham North held a team meeting this week, where we recognised the struggles some families face caring for loved ones at home, and how proud we are to have the skills to be able to assist and help relieve the stress some people face in their homes recognising the feeling of Isolatation.  We are only to pleased to be able to offer our services where we can, as we understand it is not just the person we care for, but the need to look out for the family members who face struggles.

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

The campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK, drawing attention to just how important caring is.

This Carers Week, we’re coming together to build communities that support the health and wellbeing of carers. Around 6.5 million people in the UK are carers, looking after a parent, partner, child or friend. A carer is someone who provides unpaid care and support to a family member or friend who has a disability, illness, mental health problem or who needs extra help as they grow older. Caring can be a hugely rewarding experience but sometimes carers find it challenging to take care of their own well-being whilst caring. The impact of caring on health and well-being should not be underestimated this Carers week we will be looking to share examples of good practice from supporters of which have helped carers to stay Healthy and Connected.
