Top tips from carers:
- Talk to family and friends – raise concerns and worries, let them know how you’re planning to approach Christmas in advance and don’t be afraid to ask for help
- Talk to other carers – peer support can be invaluable throughout the year but especially around Christmas. Find out about Devon Carers support groups in your area
- Be kind to yourself – recognise the importance of your role and take some time to be generous to yourself too.
