Aberdeen Carers Support

Service

If you provide unpaid care to someone in the Aberdeen City area, then you have come to the right place for support, advice and information.

What we can help with

Aberdeen Carers Support Service offers information and advice based on individual circumstances, because we know each caring role is unique.

You might have been caring for a week, a year or ten years when you come through our door and ask to be recognised as a carer. This first conversation can be difficult and emotional, which is why our staff team consists of highly trained and knowledgeable people who can walk you through this experience with care and compassion.

We will chat with you about the person you care for, what you do in your caring role, what you may have given up, how you are feeling and any negative impact your caring role has had on your health and wellbeing. You may simply be looking for training or a copy of the carers’ newsletter and may not feel you need a lot of support. You can be registered at any point in your caring experience. If there are areas in your life that you are not managing, we will offer the training and support that you need. There is no threshold for entry into receiving support. If you would like to talk about your caring role, please get in touch.

Carers can have many choices and decisions to make and some of the more common enquiries relate to:

  • The importance of respite
  • Financial support
  • The needs of specific conditions
  • What to do when a person is discharged from hospital
