What is the Somerset Foundation Trust Carers Service?
At Somerset Foundation Trust, we work to the triangle of care standards. This means that we believe for someone to make a successful and sustained recovery the client, staff and carers must all work in together. The carers’ assessment service is a team who specialise in supporting the carers of people who have mental health conditions. We do this in a variety of ways starting with a carers assessment, this is followed by up to two more sessions if required, to advise and support you. Below is some of the things we can do;
- Signposting on how to access benefits and benefit support.
- Getting a break or holiday (alone or with the person you care for)
- Befriending services
- Accessing advocacy
- Support for physical health needs
- Education sessions
- Peer support via groups
- A listening ear in times of brief crisis
