Caring as a positive experience - Male Carer
“Joan, 73, from Hoveton, cares for her husband, 75, who had a brain haemorrhage last year.  She found out about the support available from Norfolk Carers and took up some counselling to help her with the emotional side of caring and a short break to relax and go horse riding. She advises other carers to seek out information, advice and support:“You’ve got to think about the person you are caring for, but you must look after yourself too and not be frightened to ask for help.”
Joan - Hoveton
“My Carer Support Lead is an absolute star. She is always there when I need and has seen me through some difficult times.”

“Mrs X said the grant was a considerable help in a very tight financial situation: “To say I am delighted a new fridge freezer is on its way is an understatement and I am so looking forward to the delivery.  My life will become much easier and I feel confident that the food held in it will now not defrost before I can get it cooked.  The help is very much appreciated.”
Funding Support feedback - local carer
“My Pilates course was excellent! I suffer from arthritis and it has helped this as well to keep me fit for caring. The Pilates/Yoga course gave me time to meet other people and enjoy the exercises. I am still carrying on the classes, keeping me supple to do my caring job.”

“I now know if I need information you will only be a phone call away.”
Advice Line Survey feedback - Local carer
“Taking the course has increased my knowledge and made me look at things in a different perspective. I was a mental health nurse but this improved my understanding.”
Asperger's Carer feedback on Learning Grant
“I felt great after the short break (been caring for my 95 year old mum who has vascular dementia for 10 yrs) and ready to go back into her live-in care again. Thank you.”
