Suffolk Family Carers is a charity that has been supporting Family Carers for the past 23 years. We provide support and information and often a lot more. If you are looking after someone at home whether that is a husband, wife, partner, mother, father, brother, sister, son, daughter, neighbour or friend who cannot care for themselves then we are here to support you. David Cunliffe, from Suffolk Family Carers will be available to offer advice and information about being a carer as well as services provided by SFC.
The Ipswich Hospital works with Suffolk Family Carers to provide support to family carers visiting patients. We have information available at our Information Centre/Advice and Complaints Service and aim to work alongside family carers to plan for discharge and to ensure a holistic approach to care. Sarah Higson, Patient Experience Lead will be available to provide information and advice about coming into hospital and support for carers.
