During Carers Week 2020, we help to make caring visible by sharing voices of staff members at Kingsley Napley, who are either carers themselves or witness the effects of others being required to fulfil a carer’s role. Today, we share Claire Parry’s story about her brother, who has an Acquired Brain Injury, and the unsettling impact of the COVID-19 lockdown on his stability, routine and well-being as well as the challenges experienced by his family and carers.

Carers Week 2020: Planning ahead to ease the pressure on carers

Carers are often unpaid relatives and/or close family friends; they can face practical problems such as not being able to speak to third parties on behalf of the person for whom they are caring and it can be difficult to access that person’s funds without legal authority. These practical issues can unnecessarily add more stress and challenges to the carer’s role, which should otherwise be focused on caring. To help alleviate this pressure, it’s important for anyone to look at ways they may be able to plan for and organise their financial affairs to help make these situations better for those who may need to care for them.

This week (8-14 June 2020) is Carers Week.  The rallying call “lets raise our voices together and help make caring visible” could not be more relevant given the current situation the whole world is facing.
