My name is Yunus, I am 16 and live in Victoria. One unique thing about me is I love cooking.
I have been caring for my grandfather for 3 years. My grandfather requires care because he has a disability. I have to care for my grandfather because he’s lonely.
My responsibilities include cleaning for my pops, cooking for him and shopping for him. However, I also have to help him get out of bed. Just like me I’d imagine other young carers would also have to care.
A good day caring for my grandfather looks like every day. Being away from my grandfather makes me feel scared.
Being a carer has changed my life because I am closer to my grandfather. Because of my caring role I am unable to work.
Being a carer has taught me patience and love. I’m already coping good. I would like others to realise that carers go through a lot. My piece of advice to my fellow young carers is just do it.
