Support for carers of older people: some intranational and national comparisons: a review of the literature prepared for the Audit Commission

During 2003 the Audit Commission conducted a study of services and support for the carers of older people in England, with a particular emphasis on the implementation of the national Carer's Strategy. In order to place this study in context, a background study was commissioned into the approaches taken in a number of other countries to supporting carers.

Support for carers of older people

This is the fifth report in the Audit Commission’s series looking at ways to promote the independence and well-being of older people, the previous reports have focused on: ● what independence means for older people (Ref. 1); ● what local authorities, working with other agencies, can do to promote independence and well-being for all of their older citizens (Ref. 2); ● ways of doing this for older people who have become frail (Ref. 3); and ● the role that assistive technology can play (Ref. 4). 2 Many frail older people rely on care provided by relatives or friends.
