What happens to me when my caring role comes to an end?

The end of your caring role may take some time to adjust to. Having more time to yourself may give you the opportunity for a much-needed rest, but it can also leave you feeling that you have a lot of time to fill. The Carers UK website gives some helpful advice about:

  • Helping to provide support to other carers
