Ordinary people. Extraordinary lives. Unpaid carers are ordinary people doing something extraordinary. Each day they put aside their own lives to help someone unable to manage on their own, whether it’s their parent, partner, child, grandparent or even a close friend.
There are times in all of our lives when we have a problem we don't feel able to tackle by ourselves. While we value the advice and support of friends, sometimes we need the help of specialists to overcome the problem and regain control of our lives. With that, we can also gain in health, happiness and confidence, which are all too often lost to stress.
