Taking care of carers: Carers Week 2016

June 06, 2016

“My husband’s life has had to change as drastically as my own in order to accommodate my condition, and over the years he has often had to act as my carer. Our life as a couple has completely changed as there is so little we can do together.”

That’s the experience of Carolyn, who has M.E. Sharing her story in the Irvine Herald to raise awareness of M.E. and its impact, not just on patients but on those caring for them.

That's why, as part of Carers Week, starting today, we are highlighting the invaluable contribution that carers make, and signposting carers to sources of information, advice and support, including our Caring for somebody with M.E. booklet.
