Abstract

The evidence from this study has highlighted a number of critical points when carers' needs for information, advice and help are particularly acute - and these are also points at which they are likely to encounter professionals and service providers. This means that all professionals and service providers will need to check that carers have the information and advice appropriate for the challenges they are currently experiencing and that they know where to go for further information and advice when future difficulties arise. Failure to recognise carers' needs at these points risks the breakdown of care-giving and the carer's health and other costs for carers and wider society.
