An assessment will help us to understand what kind of care you need. You can find out further information about Nursing care and paying for care
Caring for somebody
We use the term carer to describe someone who provides unpaid care and support for a partner, relative or friend who has a disability, illness, mental health or memory loss. The person who is cared for would not be able to manage day to day living without this care and support. In Blackpool there are more than 16,000 people who provide unpaid care for another person.
