Family members who care for loved ones can learn more about the support available to them at an information day led by Scarborough and Ryedale Carers Resource (SRCR).
Malton Library will host the event on Tuesday from 10.30am to 2.30pm to mark Carers Week.
A SRCR spokesman said: “The very nature of caring often means people don’t at first, or sometimes ever, identify themselves as a carer. Rather, they think of themselves simply as wife, husband, son, daughter, mum, dad or perhaps grandparent, niece or nephew helping a loved one.
“Without the right help and support caring can have a devastating impact – carers can quickly become isolated, with their physical and emotional health, work and finances all hit hard.”
Information about the available help can also be found by calling (01723) 850155 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively visit www.carersresource.net.
