Adult Carers

Renfrewshire Carers Centre supports adult Carers by providing a range of services listed below.

 

We offer a range of events and activities to allow Carers time away from their caring role and the opportunity to socialise with other Carers in similar situations.

New Carers to the Centre, can, if they wish be allocated an Adult Carer Support Worker. You can make a referral online or you can call and speak to a member of staff on  0141 887 3643.

We’re here to help in any way we can. Here you can find support information and FAQs, including accessing the Citizens Advice Bureau through ourselves.

An Emergency Plan will detail the immediate care needs of the person who’s cared for. This includes support needs, daily routine, risks and the contact details of family members and/or friends.
 
Carers will be issued with a Carers Emergency Card, which will identify them as a Carer. Should an emergency occur, the Carers Emergency Card will alert services that a plan is in place and health, social care and other support services can be arranged, as necessary.
