In the conversation, Mandy describes how she realised she was a carer, the support she received by reaching out, and the upcoming Carers Rights Day on Thursday 23 November.
“Just reach out. It can feel disloyal sometimes, talking about the person you care for’s needs and their medical issues with other people, but you’ve got to. You can’t bottle it in and deal with it yourself. All carers need support”
