Caring for Carers
Alongside those living with pulmonary fibrosis, we know that those caring for them can often benefit from the support. This is why carer support is an integral part of our pulmonary fibrosis support group.
We offer family members an individual appointment with the Family Support Team, using the Carer Support Needs Assessment Tool (CSNAT) to enable us to support you appropriately as our needs are all different.
This may include practical support, emotional support, linking you into relevant organisations, support groups or courses etc. This is reviewed regularly and as your needs/support changes.
Currently bereaved carers are invited to continue to attend if this is in their best interest and their experience and input is highly valued by the group.
