I didn’t know YOU cared!

A resource day aimed at increasing awareness of the needs of older people who take care of others, and exploring ways in which the Church can celebrate and support them

Older people are often seen as people who receive care. In fact increasing numbers of older people are themselves carers of a spouse who is frail or confused. Others have grown-up children with physical or learning disabilities or mental health problems, who rely on them. Others have the main responsibility for bringing up a grandchild. Older carers worry about their own health and about what will happen to their loved ones after they have gone. This resource day is for older carers, clergy and others involved in pastoral care, and interested professionals. It will provide an opportunity to share stories and to understand the issues better, a space for spiritual reflection, and a forum to look at how churches can respond.
