Here at Persona, we think it’s important that we take a ‘Whole Family’ approach to our business and we make it our priority to make sure we support not only our customers but also their loved ones/carers.
Not everyone chooses to become a carer to their loved one and often this can just happen; sometimes very suddenly. We appreciate being a carer isn’t always easy and that it can be both emotionally and physically exhausting at times – that’s where we can hopefully offer you some much needed support!!
What support is available?
We offer a range of services that can be provided flexibly to meet your individual circumstances and also give you a well deserved break to enjoy some quality time to yourself, whether that be for a couple of hours during the day so you can go shopping or catch up with friends or maybe something a little longer like a couple days/week away for a family holiday or event.
In addition, we also have a fantastic which meets from 7pm till 9pm on the last Thursday of every month at Pinfold Lane in Whitefield; this gives carers an ideal opportunity to meet other like-minded people who are also in a caring role and share their life experiences and knowledge with others.
Anyone can pay to use our services at any time, for more information about charges. In addition, as a carer, you may also be entitled to some financial support from the local authority (this is subject to eligibility criteria - please click on the Bury Council link below to find out more) to help you pay for any care and support for your loved one in the future.
