Bridgit Care - more than a carer header

An interview series for carers to share thoughts, feelings and emotions.

I'm more than a carer - feel invisible
I'm more than a carer - affording to live is hard
I'm more than a carer - climbing a ladder
I'm more than a carer - broke

Being a carer is hard, having a huge impact on your life, emotions and mental health.

1Carers give a lot of themselves when caring for a family member, friend or neighbour.
2It doesn’t matter how old you are or where you’re from, most carers forget to look after themselves. 
3This is made worse by those around them focusing all attention on the person being cared for and never asking the simple yet important question of “how are you feeling and are you okay?”

Share your experiences so other carers can understand they are not alone.
