Older carers of adults with a learning disability

Carers look after family, partners or friends in need of help because they are ill, frail or have a disability. The care they provide is unpaid.

If you need help to care for a relative or a friend request a carers assessment online or contact your local social work office

We can also provide information about short breaks for carers.

Our report Time to Think About highlights many of the issues raised by older carers of adults with a learning disability which are now being used to influence practice and policy in South Lanarkshire. You can also download a copy of the Time to Think About Executive Summary.
