Caring for someone inevitably changes your relationship with them and can expose it to stresses and strains that make it difficult. Carers Trust in partnership with relationship experts OnePlusOne have written a new guide for carers to help you cope with the changes in the relationship. The emphasis is on preventing problems rather than only getting help when there is a crisis. You can find the guide on the Carers Trust website http://relationships.carers.org/
