Group says caring will become more relevant

Carers Matter held a Carer’s conference in Canal Court Hotel in Newry on June 12 to celebrate Carers Week.

Patricia Jordan from the group said that “caring will become more relevant than ever with changes in the way health services are delivered.”

At the conference, Carers, health professionals and a range of prominent people from the world of health were invited to take part in a ‘Carers Question Time’ panel event.

They came together to discuss what changes ‘Transforming Your Care’ will bring to respite and residential care in the Southern Health and Social Care Trust.
