I have worked at Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre since June 2016.
The assessment aims to talk over the Carers current caring role and see if we can offer any support or signposting to help them. It may involve referring in to the Carers centre for support or to social services for things such as carer support or equipment. We also review Carers annually if they have on- going support needs.
My working background has always been in the field of social care, I used to support people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and people with Acquired brain injuries. I have always enjoyed working directly with people and their carers. In the past I have had a caring role with family members and I appreciate how caring can affect people’s everyday lives so I always try my best to help if I can.
