Full-Time Carer: Suzanne's Story

Suzanne referred herself to Carers’ Hub Rochdale last summer. She’s her husband’s carer but also has her own health problems due to her age. Because of her own issues, Suzanne was having difficulty caring for her husband and was also finding it hard to take any time her herself as he couldn’t be on his own.

Carers' Hub Rochdale was able to help Suzanne by referring her to Adult Care for a carer’s assessment, and also for an OT assessment to help with her everyday needs and the Fall Prevention Team. 

Now, equipment has been fitted in Suzanne’s home to help her and her husband to get around more safely, reducing the risk of falling. She has also received Carers Personal Budget (CPB). Suzanne has now said that she and her husband are feeling more safe and, after receiving the right support, her role as a carer has become easier.
