#WeNurses - Thursday 24th November 2022 8:30pm (GMT Standard Time) Nurses identifying and supporting unpaid carers

If you haven't joined in a tweet chat before it's very simple.    Here's a guide





 Chat Details

 

Hosted by WeNurses using #WeNurses

Carers Rights Day is an annual event to focus on UnpaidCarers of all ages and:

  • ensure carers are aware of their rights
  • let carers know where to get help and support
  • raise awareness of the needs of carers

“Caring Costs” in so many ways. It could be the cost to unpaid carers’ wellbeing and ability to access health services. Sometimes it’s the financial costs associated with looking after someone – or the effects on carers’ employment options. Taking care of someone may cost carers the quality of their relationships, through not being able to take time out to spend with friends and family or through changes to the relationship with those they care for. And the current cost of living crisis is being felt even more acutely by carers throughout the UK. Carers UK 2022

“ …..I only eat one meal a day now….” Young Adult Carer

Nurses and their colleagues play an invaluable role in identifying, signposting, and supporting unpaid carers whether in the community, hospital ward, outpatient clinic, GP practice…….   Many unpaid carers and young carers don’t identify themselves as unpaid carers andare therefore not accessing their right to a Carer Assessment and are unaware of local carer support services.

 NHSE is committed to supporting unpaid carers  fulfilling the ambitions of the NHS Long TermPlan

NHSLong Term Plan » Our long term commitment to carers

Nurses themselves may also be an unpaid carer juggling their caring responsibilities with their job. 400,000 NHS England employees reported having an unpaid caring role for a relative or friend, and 55.3% said they were satisfied or very satisfied with opportunities for flexible working pattern.

Carers UK 2021

We’ll be exploring the following questions during the tweet chat:

  • How do you identify unpaid carers in your workplace?
  • What do you do if you identify someone as or supported by an unpaid carer?
  • How and when do you involve unpaid carers in the care and discharge of their loved one?
  • Does your workplace support staff who are unpaid carers? If so, what does it do?
  • How can we continue to raise awareness across the nursing profession of the needs and value of unpaid carers?

We hope you can join us to network and share good practice!

Guest Host
Fiona Rogers – Programme Manager Long Term Conditions and Personalisation and @WeNurses volunteer has led an innovative project with WestYorkshire Heath and Care Partnership recently coproducing and launching a series of short films to raise awareness of young carers.

@WeNurses #WeNurses depend on circumstance, work setting: Ensure they're supported, listened & valued. Work adjustment, carer’s leave policy, provide extra individualised (supervision) time if needed, a safe and encouraging environment. Be kind and compassionate.
@CareHome_Nurse
24 November 2022 20:42
@WeNurses Include them in conversations if that's appropriate, get to know them and then work out if you need to share information to help both the person and the carer, such as a local carers network or signpost them to appropriate services #WeNurses

@WeNurses Sometimes unpaid carers are children or partners of a patient. And adults are unaware they could claim an allowance #wenurses #MDXTNA
@RakheeLb
24 November 2022 20:47
@WeNurses #WeNurses Unpaid carers gain new rights as Health & care Act 2022 introduced in July 01. Carers are involved when decisions are made throughout the "health & care pyramid."

@WeNurses From the start! Open and honest communication is so important. They have probably looked after their loved one for a while and might now feel side lined. We might think it's a great break for them but think how they might feel? #WeNurses

@NRCUK
24 November 2022 20:50
@WeNurses From the moment the patient is introduced to you. But, the "system" is so far behind involving the patient in their own care, so how likely still are their carers (Blaming GDPR) to be recognised, noted and valued in terms of the patients quality of care or outcome? #wenurses

@CareHome_Nurse
24 November 2022 20:53
@WeNurses I think workplaces need to inform staff of their policies from day 1 of employment and regularly remind them, using Carers Day is ideal to promote inclusive policies. Employers are more understanding about childcare issues than when you care for an elderly relative. #WeNurses
@mynameisAndyJ
24 November 2022 20:53
@WeNurses A3 All carers paid or unpaid should be involved from day 1 - they should be central to discussions, planning and also the discharge should ensure they are supported this sadly when missed issues occur ie malnourished to readmitted #WeNurses

@WeNurses These carers support many people to live independently at home, you might never meet them but if you do its normally due to a breakdown in circumstances. Listen to them as they know your patient better than anyone especially if there is a cognitive impairment #WeNurses

@WeNurses #WeNurses A4 sadly it’s not consistent the #NHS should have clear guidance inc policy for all trusts to follow and be open about it. Good employers get better response and staff recruitment if it’s consistent https://twitter.com/wenurses/status/1595882447669006339

@firogers3 @WeNurses @WYpartnership #WeNurses I feel working Unpaid Carers need to be recognized and not feel stigmatized in the workplace .. why keep it a secret, its much like the same leeway offered during pregnancy ... having to leave now ad then quickly and sometimes arriving a little late..

@WendyJNicholson @WeNurses From my experiences employers are more understanding when you have a childcare issue.... there needs to be parity for those that support adults in a similar caring role #WeNurses

@WeNurses #WeNurses In West Yorkshire we have some good resources to raise awareness of young carers and co-created with @firogers3 . One-minute guides and our video series which can be used in training sessions: https://youtu.be/109uoYMhxIg https://t.co/LxmFbetQRY

@WendyJNicholson @WeNurses I think there is a presumption that parents are willing to take on the most complex tasks, in order to get child home. We need to be careful to ask and make sure they feel supported. #advocacy #WeNurses

Interesting, have other working carers found this, or would you be more flexible with staff over childcare than saying when caring for a loved one? #wenurses https://twitter.com/CareHome_Nurse/status/1595885055662264320

Well, that was a fast 30 mins and we seem to have learned a lot with @firogers3 and we think we'll be exploring "Working Carers Passports" with @Mummillionx soon hopefully :) Time for a quick thank you to Fiona for helping us today bring carers and working carers to #WeNurses https://t.co/UWqRjyn3xM
