Marking Carers Rights Day, Kate Garraway discusses her new book and advocates for unpaid carers.
On Carers Rights Day, television presenter and author Kate Garraway appeared on the popular ITV show 'Loose Women'. Garraway, known for her candid and compassionate broadcasting style, shared insights from her latest book, 'The Strength of Love: Embracing an Uncertain Future with Resilience and Optimism', and discussed the often-overlooked challenges faced by unpaid carers.
During the show, Garraway spoke about her experiences, which have significantly shaped her understanding and advocacy for carers' rights. Her book, which has been described as intimate, tender and brutally honest, delves into the complexities of caring and the resilience required to navigate a caring role.
The discussion also highlighted the crucial role of organisations like Carers First, who use Carers Rights Day to tell carers about what help they are entitled to. Kate’s appearance on 'Loose Women' was not just about sharing her story but also about raising awareness for the needs of carers and the rights that they have.
Kate talked about how so much about caring is wonderful, but if it is not acknowledged how difficult it is, carers are done a disservice.
