Rally round to support carers
Posted: Wednesday, 24 August 2016
Carers across the district are invited to attend a free talk about rally round – an online service supporting carers to help their loved ones stay safe and well at home.
The talk hosted by Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust and Bradford Council will show carers how to use the rally round service which aims to help people stay in their homes for longer, improve health and wellbeing and reduce isolation.
The event will be held Monday 5 September, 1.30pm -2pm, at the Carer’s Hub, Horton Park Health Centre (Level 2), 99 Horton Park Ave, BD7 3EG.
Mike Halliday, Commissioning Manager, Adult and Community Services at Bradford Council, said: “Rally round allows a network to be created around a person with care needs. Anything that the person needs help with can be listed as a task. Then, trusted friends, family members, neighbours or staff involved in their care can see this, discuss it, agree to take the task on and let everyone know when it has been done.”
The event is part of a series of talks the Care Trust’s, Carer’s Hub is hosting throughout the year on a range of carer issues such as carers’ allowances and payments, and practical advice to help carers look after their own health.
Paula Smith, Carers Lead at Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Working closely with carers, we have developed a Carer’s Hub to support people caring for loved ones who access the Trust’s services. The Hub gives carers the chance to meet other carers, get free advice and support, get involved in activities and take time out for themselves.”
