Caring for someone with anxiety is a big responsibility. It can be both physically and emotionally challenging, and you require a lot patience, compassion and understanding to help you and the person you care for get through the day.
Talking about your situation and feelings with health professionals or other carers can be helpful and enable you to cope better. Some organisations run support groups where carers can meet and share their stories. Other organisations provide relief services, such as respite care, so that you can get a break every now and then.
The resources shown on this page offer information, advice and support for you as a carer.
Are you a carer or helping someone out?
