Carers Resource Folder – feedback request

Hi, my name is Steve Taylor and I manage of the carers team in Leeds at Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

I am in the process of developing a ‘Carers Resource Folder’ and am keen to get your views and feedback on it.

The folder comprises of a series of fact Sheets that carers can pick up as they go through their own  ‘journey’ of mental health services.carers resource pack

There will be a core number of sheet (information that is relevant) to all Mental Health carers and others that are service specific.

By introducing the information as a series of ‘fact sheets’ means that it keeps cost low and information would be able to be updated easier.

Click here to view the Resource Pack 

All ‘fact sheets would be available to download or view from LYPFT external website.

Please consider:

  • The overall presentation
  • The wording – is it understandable? is it in plain English?
  • The layout
  • The content – is it enough information, too much?

Can you please post your comments here or feel free to email them to me stephen.taylor3@nhs.net  by 14th April 2014

Many thanks

Steve

Role of the family/carer in acute care – are we asking too much?

Hi, Alex posted this comment and question:-

Hi very new to this so hope this works. I just have a question to throw out there.
Are we asking too much of carers? We provide a lot of acute community care, for some Service users they live with families or families have to come together at times of acute needs to support services to manage people at home.  Is this a lot to ask?
Expecting family to take on this extra support role is sometimes too much and this in turn changes family/friendship relations ships.

How might we do things differently?

sorry for the ramble hope this makes sense.
