Do you provide unpaid care for a friend or relative? We offer access to vital information and support for Carers along with a clear communication link to our experienced professional team.
Carers of Epsom was founded in 1988 by a small group of local Carers who recognised the need for a support organisation and decided to do something about it. Carers of Epsom is now a charity incorporate actively supporting around 2000 Carers in Banstead, Epsom and Ewell. In addition we also host the Mid Surrey Moving & Handling Advisory Service which also extends to Mole Valley and East Elmbridge.
If you are looking after someone with an illness or disability, you may need to help them move around. It’s essential that you know about safe moving and handling so you don’t hurt yourself or them. The Mid Surrey Moving & Handling service is a free service for Carers, advising and demonstrating how to safely move and help the person you care for. The service can also advise about suitable equipment and has a small stock of items which can be borrowed whilst Carers are awaiting the supply of permanent items.
