Dealing with stress

Signs of stress may include loss of self esteem, lack of concentration, exhaustion or even hostility towards the person you care for.

If you feel stressed, it is important to seek advice and support. Visit your GP surgery and tell the practice you are a carer.

The Family Support Team at Dorothy House will also support you or refer you to the most appropriate service – please call our Clinical Coordination Centre on 0345 0130 555 (Monday-Friday, 8-6pm; Saturday-Sunday 9am-5pm).
