Carers Week Event

Connecting with Carers

Organisation: Cygnet Hospital Harrow

Cygnet hospital Harrow have developed a Carers Blog to improve our communication with carers and provide the opportunities for carers to share their stories and experience in caring for an adult with mental health. We are also using the Carers blog to create awareness about autism and mental health. In addition, promoting the health and well-being of family carers. During the COVID 19 we contacted family carers to check how they are coping with social distancing and provided opportunities for them to connect with their love ones, by organising telephone conferencing so they can continue to participate in the ward round. In 2018 we celebrated Carers Week by organising the first Carers Seminar " Recognising and Valuing Family Carers" Dame Philippa Russell, was our keyspeaker, who spoke about caring for a child with disability. We also faciliated carers drop-in for Carers in partnership with Harrow Carers and ensure that family members who care for an adult with mental health are referred for a carers assessment when we identify that there health is at risk.
