Healthy Caring Guide –  NHS England, in partnership with Carers UK, Carers Trust Age UK, Public Health England, and older carers themselves, has published a Practical Guide to Healthy Caring.The Guide provides information and advice to carers about staying healthy whilst caring and identifies the support available to help carers maintain their health and wellbeing. While it is aimed at carers of any age, it is particularly relevant for carers aged around 65 years and those new to caring.
