Choosing Careline for a Parent Always being there for your parents isn't an easy task. Life's fast pace makes it hard to balance everyday commitments to work and family.
CarersIt might feel like you're the only one dealing with this but actually the experience of looking after a family member, partner or friend is very common. One in eight adults in the UK is a Carer. It's something that will happen to most people at some point in their lives - In fact every year; over 2 million people become carers for the first time.
Carer's Emergency Alert CardThe Carer's emergency alert card is a laminated card the size of a credit card, which will identify you as a Carer if you have an accident. The scheme is free for anyone that lives within West Sussex and is run by Chichester Careline with support from West Sussex County Council.
