Caring for Carers – an integrated approach to the inclusion of family carers

09 May 2022 | 09:00 - 10:00 CEST
Problem solving session/thematic workshop

Unpaid family carers represent the largest source of care provision worldwide. Caregiving places a heavy burden on carers, impacting adversely on their health (physical and mental), finances and social inclusion. In low and middle income countries, carer burden is further exacerbated by poverty and gender inequality, plus a lack of state welfare systems. As we strive to achieve the SDGs, it is clear that without adequate consideration of the needs of family carers, we will not achieve sustainable change. In the session I will present the five-element Carers Worldwide model to holistically address the needs of carers and achieve long term change at individual, community and policy level. Participants will gain insights and practical advice on how to start the conversation about carer inclusion in their own spheres of influence.
