Carers over 75

CarersMK – Older Persons Support Worker

Are you over the age of 75 looking after someone who cannot manage without you because they are ill, frail, disabled or have a mental health condition?

My name is Carolin Sterling and I would like to introduce myself as the over 75’s Advice and Support Worker for CarersMK.

The main responsibility of my role is to provide information, advice and support, including emotional support, to older carers (aged seventy five and over) in Milton Keynes.

A key area of this is to support carers who are isolated and may struggle to access existing services for many reasons. This could be the restrictions on time that caring imposes, their own health or a lack of local transport, particularly in rural areas.

I am based at Margaret Powell House and will be working in the community to reach carers and provide support via telephone and face to face, in addition to supporting them to access groups and information.

If you would like to access this support, either over the telephone or face to face please contact me.

Telephone: 01908 231 703
