Poor mental or physical health

Former carers are partners, relatives, friends or neighbours who have completed their caring role because of the death of the person they were supporting or because the carer no longer has any involvement in caring.

Poor mental or physical health

Unread postby Matt (CPC Admin) » Mon Jul 15, 2019 11:41 am

The isolation experienced during caring may affect carers' mental health and an intensely physically demanding role may result in injuries or illness for carers. Some carers' health will improve once caring has ended, whereas for others there will be the onset of an illness. Health issues may also affect some carers' ability to re-enter the workforce.
