At the APA, we recognise the important role that carers play in the care and wellbeing of patients in Australia. The contribution by carers can often go unrecognised and this can lead to feelings of being overworked and undervalued. This article will provide links to resources for new and existing carers.
Research in Australia shows that the three common areas of concern for carers are: health and wellbeing; financial strain; and social issues. This article will focus on these three areas but please contact us if you feel that a resource is missing or a topic is not covered.
