Abstract

Unpaid care is an important part of long-term care systems. It is increasingly recognised that carers have their own health and wellbeing needs. Carer-specific interventions, as well as support for the care-recipient, may enable carers to maintain their own health and wellbeing alongside caring. This study seeks to establish whether and how community-based care services affect carers’ QoL. The ASCOT-Carer interview (INT4) was used to capture carers’ social care-related quality of life in qualitative interviews and a survey of carers’ in England to provide insights into the impact of community-based care services on carers’ QoL outcomes.
