It's Carers Week and we're talking about caring here at Oakhouse Foods. Caring can turn your life upside down or steadily increase without you noticing how it's taking over your life. It can have its ups as well as its downs. You can feel alone or you can find family and friends rallying round. No two people who are caring for loved ones are the same and caring can affect your life in many different ways.

There’s so much information out there that you may be wondering where to start – that’s why Carers UK have put together all the basics you’ll need to know when you first start caring including financial help, practical help, looking after your health and juggling work and caring.

If you’d like to find out more visit www.carersuk.org/help-and-advice or call the Carers UK advice line on 0808 808 7777- it’s open on Wednesdays and Thursdays 10am-12 noon and 2-4 pm.
