Support for carers

Former carers

A former carer is someone who through bereavement or other circumstances no longer has the responsibility of their role as a primary carer. This includes the person they are caring for moving into alternative accommodation such as residential/nursing care, social or educational residential placements. 

This can be a very difficult and sad time and there is support available.

Carers in Bedfordshire provide information, advice, guidance and support to former carers including groups.

Mobilise provide information, advice and guidance for former carers in Central Bedfordshire.


There are a number of organisations available to support you with grief and bereavement at this time.
