Our Retirement on Hold report highlighted some of the challenges faced by older carers and made recommendations to improve their experience now and in the future.
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.
Carers Trust's report Care Act for carers: One Year On showed that there are some carers who are getting good support under the Care Act, as well as some examples of good practice.
Carers Trust and the Men's Health Forum carried out research to find out more about the experiences and needs of male carers and to help raise awareness of the fact that male carers may not be getting the support they need.
