Caring for Carers – New Resource Launched for Ireland’s former Family Carers
- 62,000 people become former Family Carers Annually
A new resource has been launched to support people whose caring has ended - as they enter a new phase in their lives. When caring ends many family carers experience a range of emotions - grief, exhaustion, isolation - a real void in their lives can emerge.
In collaboration with a number of former Family Carers and not-for profit organisations including the Irish Hospice Foundation, UCC, and West Cork Carers Support Group, as well as the HSE, Care Alliance Ireland has produced a 64 page A5 Booklet aimed at former Family Carers, which is free of charge.
