Are you a Carer?
It may be that you are one of the army of 6.5million carers in the UK, providing support for your loved ones on a daily basis. Caring for another and proving for their needs can be complex and indeed a challenging process.
As a carer you may complete a diverse range of roles and duties for your loved ones. Including:
Practical household tasks such as cooking, cleaning, washing up, ironing, paying bills and financial management.
Personal care such as bathing, dressing, lifting, administering medication and collecting prescriptions.
Emotional support such as listening, offering advice and friendship.
Every year in the UK, over 2.3 million adults become carers and over 2.3 million adults stop being carers.
Three in five people will be carers at some point in their lives in the UK.
Out of the UK’s carers, 42% of carers are men and 58% are women.
The economic value of the contribution made by carers in the UK is £119bn per year.
Over the next 30 years, the number of carers will increase by 3.4 million (around 60%).
The number of people over 85 in the UK, the age group most likely to need care, is expected to increase by over 50% to 1.9 million over the next decade.
