Report highlights lack of support for carers

The lack of support for carers of people at the end of life, and the impact this has on them and their loved ones, has been highlighted in a new report from Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Committed to Carers highlights how carers can have drastically different experiences of support and information, and how a lack of coordinated support can cause health breakdowns for carers and unnecessary hospital admissions for them and their loved ones, preventing people from dying in their place of choice.

The report makes a number of recommendations on how carers can be identified and provided with any support and information they may need.
