Our services

Enabling service

Our free Enabling service is about YOU, the Carer:                

  •  We can help you get the services you need.

  •  We listen to your concerns and aim to help you overcome them.

  •  We walk alongside you, through your most difficult times, and help with an action plan to support you to move forward, at your own pace.

  •  We offer help, advice and support throughout Torbay in a kind and caring way.       

 

Carers Aid Torbay will support any unpaid Carer in Torbay. We offer them advice, help, information, practical and emotional support to alleviate some of the stress created by the responsibilities of caring.

Health & Wellbeing for Carers

All Carers who live in Torbay can have a Carer's Health and Wellbeing check from either us at Carers Aid Torbay or from a Carer Support Worker at their GP practice.

All Carers should receive support to make sure that their caring does not affect their own health and wellbeing, now or in the future.

We will chat with you about your caring situation and how it affects you.

This will help to:

  • Identify the best possible support for you and the person you care for.

  • Help you maintain your own health and wellbeing

  • Help support with education, employment, training or volunteering

  • Support to plan for any emergencies

  • Ensure you have time to yourself, to pursue hobbies and interests
