Story: Care and carers

Family Care Radio

Family Care Radio was an internet radio show and website for carers and those for whom they cared, which operated in 2008 and 2009. Its monthly programmes included regular features on legal issues, continence management, safety in the home, and managing health and stress. The programme for September 2009 discussed creative writing as an outlet for those who care at home, and Viv Nelson read a poem, 'Bedsheet', about the burdens faced by carers.
