Healthy and Connected in Derbyshire
11 to 17 June is Carers Week.
This year the national theme is helping carers to be healthy and connected.
A recent survey by Carers UK found that carers are more likely to have physical or mental health problems and often neglect them. It also found that isolation and loneliness had a negative impact on carers’ health. You can find the rest of the survey findings on their website.
Helping Carers to be Healthy and Connected in Derbyshire
We’ve teamed up with Derbyshire Carers Association and the NHS to jointly create a leaflet called ‘Helping Carers to be Healthy and Connected in Derbyshire’. The leaflet has details of local services carers can use to support their health and wellbeing, meet other carers either in person or online.
You can get copies of the leaflet by contacting Derbyshire Carers Association on tel: 01773 833833 or using our contact us form.
The leaflet has also been distributed to all Derbyshire and Derby City pharmacies so you can pick up a copy while getting your prescription. The leaflet has also been sent out with Derbyshire Healthcare Foundation Trust’s Who Cares newsletter.
