ABMU Funding raises awareness of carers
With funding from the ABMU Change for the Better Fund and Transition fund, Swansea Carers Centre now has a Carer Support Worker 2 days a week at Morriston Hospital, one day at Singleton and 1/2 a day at Cefn Coed and Gorseinon Hospitals.
The aim of the service is to target Carers of patients at the above hospitals, aid hospital discharge and to ensure that they are given the right information at the right time to support them in their caring role.
The Carer Support Workers will:
- Identify Carers information and support needs
- Refer carers for advice and support to our specialist workers at Swansea Carers Centre
- Signpost Carers to other third sector organisations
- Work with health professionals at the hospitals to identify carers and encourage referrals to our services
