Abstract

The 2005 `Kent Health and Lifestyle Survey' conducted by the Centre for Health Services Studies and commissioned by Kent County Council, contained a specific module on carers adapted from the national General Household Survey, 2000. This short summary report summarizes the findings from the main report on the carers module: Caring in Kent: Patterns and Profiles. The report offers a review of the epidemiology, characteristics and needs of family carers in Kent drawing on analysis of data from the survey. It focuses its analysis and commentary in four key areas:

a general profile of carers in Kent

levels and types of caregiving

carers' health including the impact of caring support from formal and informal sources

It also offers analysis of data around specific groups of carers including mid life carers, older carers and co resident carers.
