Alone and caring
Isolation, loneliness and the impact of caring on relationships
Isolation and loneliness is something that many people face as a result of their caring responsibilities for a disabled, older or seriously ill loved one.
Our new research reveals that 8 out of 10 carers have felt lonely or isolated as a result of caring and over a third feel uncomfortable talking to friends about being a carer.
The report outlines the causes of carers' social isolation, loneliness at work, carers' health and what can be done to make a difference.
