In this guide we explain what carers are entitled to in the workplace, including your right to request flexible working, take time off for emergencies and work without discrimination.

If the person you're caring for could benefit from additional help, our Care advice tool can give you some guidance about housing options, day-to-day living arrangements and how to pay for care. 

Use our Care services directory to find care homes and domiciliary care anywhere in the UK. You can also find support groups for people affected by dementia.
