Support for carers

Developing a tool to maintain compassion

Research project: Exploring how family carers experience and maintain continuing compassion in care: the relationship of compassion with psychological and behavioural outcomes, and co-design of an intervention to support it


Financial assessments for carers

Not everyone will be eligible to have care or support paid for by their local authority. Eligibility is determined through a financial assessment of the person receiving the care or support. 


Carers' assessments

Anyone who cares for a person with dementia is also entitled to an assessment of their own needs as a carer. This page includes information about getting a carer's assessment in Wales and what to expect and what to do in preparation for the assessment.
