Veronica Kamerling – Carers Support
Veronica Kamerling has cared for her two daughters who both had an Eating Disorder and she has also cared for her brother who has Schizophrenia.
It was while she was looking after her two daughters that she felt that Family Carers did not have the recognition or support, within the services, that they deserved. Nor, she felt, was it acknowledged how important the role of a Family Carerreally was in the recovery process. It was these thoughts that made her decide to work on behalf of Family Carers to try and get them the acknowledgment and backing that she felt they needed.
Veronica provides care and guidance for the families and loved ones that care for people suffering with eating disorders.
