The grant will be used to help vulnerable older carers in Northern Ireland, helping to manage their caring commitments. Courses & workshops will be offered to teach carers about medications, supporting the person they are caring for & recognising health problems. A befriending scheme will be set up. Peer support groups where older carers can get together to share views, feelings will be set up. Information points will be set up in Boots stores and Information days held in community centres/GP surgeries.
