State of caring report 2015

Posted by on June 9, 2015 in Active & Supportive Communities, Care Act, Home Page, My Support My Money | 0 comments

Over 4,500 current carers completed our State of Caring Survey 2015. The results show increasing pressure on carers’ finances and wellbeing, highlighting the need for more support to enable carers to look after their own health alongside caring.

 

The research found that 8 in 10 carers surveyed (82%) say that caring has had a negative impact on their health, with three-quarters (74%) struggling to get enough sleep and three-quarters (76%) expressing concerns about the impact of caring on their health in the future. More carers than ever before reported feeling stressed and anxious as a result of their caring role, with over half saying they have experienced depression.
