3rd in a series of 5 articles on informal carers in the UK, focusing on carers who may be more isolated.
Although most caregivers are, by the nature of care giving, hidden, some caregivers are perhaps more noticeable than others. This suggests that some caregivers are less noticeable, more hidden. This third article in this series on caregivers will focus on the ‘more hidden’ of the caregivers: male caregivers, young caregivers, BAME caregivers, LGBT caregivers, rural caregivers and caregivers who are elderly or have a disability themselves. Some suggestions will be offered that may help healthcare assistants (HCAs) and nurses to support these caregiver groups.
