COVID-19 In Scotland
A report detailing the experiences of unpaid carers and carer service support workers in Scotland, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The report makes a series of recommendations and suggestions to support carer service support workers as they move out of the crisis phase of the pandemic.
- Unpaid carers have spent more time caring, which has impacted their physical and mental health.
- Unpaid carers have found that the needs of the person(s) they care for have intensified.
- Carer support workers have moved to providing support online.
- The challenges that unpaid carers face, impact those supporting them, as carer support workers have found unpaid carers to have more complex needs than prior to the pandemic.
