 HEALTH AND CARE FORUM FOR SEATON LOCALITY

In 2015 Health professionals and others with an interest in Health and Care issues were invited to join a Forum for Seaton and the surrounding parishes.

Meetings of the Forum have been held at Seaton and District Hospital since 2015 and members are very keen to encourage others to join, especially in order to represent patients and the public and in particular younger members of the community.

The Forum is one of five in the East Devon area, the others being Axminster, Honiton, Ottery St. Mary and Sidmouth and this provides a route for taking more general issues forward.

With recent changes in health services it is even more important that local people have their say.

Anyone with an interest in Health and Care matters or belonging to a group that they feel should be represented on the Forum can contact Tina Trapani who chairs the Forum by phoning 01297 21788 or by emailing nantinmumber@yahoo.com

Devon Carers Just for carers 

Whatever your age, whoever you care for 

You are a carer if....

  • You provide unpaid support for family, partners or friends who need help because they are ill, frail or have a disability. 

Information 

Any carer in Devon can access:

  • Devon carers helpline, open six days a week, for information, advice and signposting. 

  • A regular newsletter, including information about local events and support groups.

  • A carer alert card to ensure the person you care for gets help if something bad happens to you.

Assesment

Are you looking after yourself?

Have you support from family or friends? 

Do you have all the help and support you need?

If the answer to any of these is no, and you are caring for an adult living in Devon, you might benefit from a carers assessment.

We also provide Carers health and well being checks for carers and children (under 18) with disabilities.

Support 

Through a carers assessment/health and well being check you might be able to access:

  • One to one help, support and advice, including help to create a contingency plan.

  • Welfare benefit checks.

  • Training to help you care and for your personal development.

  • Buddies and peer support.

  • A carers support plan and personal budget.

  • Help with time off from caring.
