Understanding different conditions

    Getting information about the conditions for the person you care for, and the treatments available, can help increase your confidence in caring, and help you feel more in control.

    At Newcastle Carers we support you to get the right information about the condition for the person you care for. You can contact our Carers Information Line on: Tel. 0191 275 5060, or SMS. 07874 100043 to speak to one of our Carer Information and Advice Workers and get more information.

    We also liaise with other organisations that specialise in providing information and support to carers who are caring for someone with a condition specific diagnosis, and we can signpost you to the right organisation or directly refer you (with your permission).

    There are useful websites to get information about specific conditions, illnesses and diseases. Visit:

    • NHS Choices - an alphabetical list of information on conditions and treatments.
    • Information NOW - Information and contact details about all organisations in Newcastle, including organisations who can provide information and support.
