• Male carers share their experiences
  • Ideas and advice from those who know what it’s like
  • Where to find help & support

This booklet is different.
We are a group of 11 male carers over the age of 85 and we have written this guide in partnership with Bournemouth University, CRISP Carers Resource and Healthwatch Dorset.

The aim is to share our experiences. We outline the help available and seek to provide reassurance that you are not alone. There are many men caring for wives and loved ones and there is help and support in Bournemouth and Poole.

Please do ask for support, we did. At first, we were not sure where to start or who to ask and that is why we have created this booklet, to make the way easier for you.
