Carers - TuVida (previously known as Reading and West Berkshire Carers Hub)
Are you, or is someone you know, providing much-needed unpaid care for a loved one?
The Carers Hub can offer:
Care at home (Berkshire)
Individualised and flexible care at home, tailored to your specific needs.
Whether help is needed for a few hours, overnight, or throughout a weekend – TuVida can provide person-centred, flexible care in the home to the person who needs it.
Respite for carers (Berkshire)
Helping carers take time off when they need it. Our respite service aims to help resolve this, by enabling unpaid carers to achieve a better balance of caring and time off.
A carer is someone who supports a relative or friend of any age fitting at least one of the following descriptions:
- elderly and frail
- physically disabled
- has a learning disability
- has mental health issues
- has a history of substance misuse
- has a serious health condition
Our Carers Hubs aim to make life easier for carers in a variety of ways; whether by connecting them with other carers, or providing free, confidential advice and information, or access to employment, training and volunteering opportunities.
