Carers sick with money worries

CASH-strapped carers in Hucknall and Bulwell are “sick with worry” over their finances, a survey has revealed.

Carers UK has found that 52% of those who took part in the questionnaire are being made ill with money problems as they struggle to take care of ill and ageing friends and relatives.

The survey revealed that carers cut back on holidays and buying clothes because of financial stress that can lead to mental-health problems.
