Who me…a carer? Why it may be difficult to see yourself as a carer

We’ve been talking about the problem of carers not always recognising their role and how this can make it harder for them to know what support is available for them. Today, we talk to Jill Foalks who works at Carers Leeds. Jill works at Carers Leeds and also keeps an eye on her own parents who are both nearly 90.

Jill talks about how people can slip into a caring role without being aware of it and also about what’s going on in Leeds this week (Carers’ week).
