What is the role of a carer?

The roles and responsibilities of carers vary as much as the people they support. The duties of a carer can include:

  • Practical tasks such as, tidying the house, doing washing, ironing, paying the bills, cooking meals, shopping
  • Personal care including, dressing, washing, lifting, giving medication or collecting prescriptions, attending doctors’ appointments
  • Emotional support such as providing a listening ear, giving support and advice, giving reassurance

This is a small sample of the extensive list of tasks that carers may undertake.
