Carers Trust Wales are please to launch the new report “Supporting Carers of People Living with Dementia”. This report has been developed as part of our project to increase the identification and support of older carers, in partnership with Age Cymru and funded by Welsh Government.
This report highlights how older parent carers and ageing carers who face additional barriers to accessing services should be supported to prepare for a time when they are less able or unable to provide care. The report is accompanied by resources for commissioners, providers and front line staff to use in the development of support for carers to plan for a future when they are less able or unable to care.

This report found that carers of people with dementia are not getting the support and advice they often desperately need. The report also highlights key points where professionals and services can and should ensure carers are receiving the necessary information, advice and support.
Developed for Carers Week 2021, these resources for GPs and those working within primary healthcare settings aim to identify older carers at key points of contact. Although these resources were developed specifically for carers week, they can be used at any time to help carers, particularly older carers, to identify themselves to primary care professionals.
