Caring into Old Age: The wellbeing and support needs of parent carers of people with disabilities

John, Bellamy, Zoe, Paleologos, Byron, Kemp

Published Literature

2014

Ageing parent carers are often very resilient, but at the same time may feel isolated or experience social or financial exclusion as a result of their caring role. The care-giving role impacts their personal wellbeing, relationships, educational opportunities and capacity for paid employment. Studies have shown that carers’ wellbeing is significantly lower than the national average. Health, finances, life achievements and future security are particular areas of concern for ageing parent carers in Anglicare’s program.
