“When I first started caring, the way ahead felt long and daunting... but after chatting to other carers, I realised that almost every new carer feels this way at first.”

In the early days of caring, you may feel uncertain, confused or even overwhelmedProduced by Carers Wales, ‘What I wish I’d known’ brings together tips from experienced carers who have been there and understand what it’s like to start caring for someone. We are grateful to the carers who shared their experience and contributed to the film with their own voices. This animation was created with thanks to funding from the Welsh Government.
