Our Occupational Therapy team welcome calls for advice from people in Devon who have taken on a caring role for a partner, family member or friend. These calls have become more frequent during and even though everyone’s situation is different, we felt it would be useful to put some general advice together in some printable reference sheets for all you carers at home.
The ‘Taking Care’ series of notes are available to download and print from this site. See the equipment advice pages for : ‘Taking care in bed’ ‘Taking care when eating and drinking’ ‘Taking care when seated’ and ‘Taking care when managing continence’
We would welcome feedback about these notes and any suggestions of further subjects that would be useful to you when caring at home.
