Paying the Price: The Hidden Impacts of Caring

This second report sets out the findings of a national Family Carer Health and Wellbeing Survey undertaken between November 2018 and January 2019 by Family Carers Ireland, the College of Psychiatrists of Ireland and UCD School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Systems. The survey was completed by 1,102 current family carers who are members or part of the network reach of Family Carers Ireland. The survey is a repeat wave of a similar survey undertaken in 2009 and allows us to track changes in the health, wellbeing and burden of carers ten years later.
