Officially, Anna became a carer for her husband in 2008 because he could not stay awake for more than a few hours a day. Yet, she was already a carer for her son, who was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was six years old.
Jasmin cares for her eight-year-old son Luke who has non-verbal autism. At first, Jasmin did not identify herself as carers. She took her caring role due to a sense of family responsibility. Her story makes a difference. She is making life better.
Jon became a carer for his wife Carolyn after she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Initially, he thought he was just looking after his wife, but as the demands of his caring role increased, he identified himself as a carer.
