Supporting & Understanding carers

Supporting carers is essential to effective community care. Increasing carers capacity to provide care may enable the people they care for to continue living and participating in the community. Supporting carers may also help to strengthen the relationship between carers and the people for whom they care, helps families, and affirms the contribution carers make to society
