Services for Carers

The aim of Social Work is to promote social welfare and to support the informal care provided by families, neighbours and the community in general.  This support to carers in Aberdeen takes a wide variety of forms including day respite, residential respite, provision of one-to-one workers, etc.

Are you looking after someone?

Caring for someone can happen very suddenly, sometimes overnight or you may find yourself doing more and more over many months and years. Although rewarding looking after someone can affect your physical and emotional wellbeing and impact on you financially and socially. This booklet has been put together to help you identify if you are a carer and to signpost you to your Local Carers Service or to services in the Community.

All carers that come into contact with Social Work are entitled to a carer’s assessment.
