Dawn’s story

Dawn, a 62 year old Croydon local, came to the Carers Support Centre for help after she took on caring for her husband full time who has type 2 diabetes and suffers from osteoarthritis. Dawn met with the friendly Advice Worker at the Carers Support Centre who listened carefully to her needs and offered the different services available to both Dawn and her husband. With a referral to Whitgift Care, Dawn could receive respite care and ease the pressure from looking after her husband. She is also able to enjoy the free services at the Centre to socialise with other carers, particularly the Carers Choir that takes place every fortnight.
