Description:
Ireland’s ageing population represents a critical challenge to the development of appropriate health and social service provision, both for carers and those requiring care. While it is Government policy to favour home and community care over long term residential care, support provided to Family Carers is vital if older people and those requiring care are to continue living in their own homes and communities. This report was commissioned by The Carers Association to provide a statistical profile of Family Carers and those who receive care at an EU constituency, national and county level. The information contained in the report is primarily derived from the Census of Population 2006, with supplementary information from the Department of Social and Family Affairs, the OECD and The Carers Association. Information is presented in tabular, graph and map form supported by commentary. This provides a comprehensive representation of the spatial and temporal patterns that are observed. Additional tables are provided in an annex to limit the number of tables within the main body of the report. This report provides a valuable resource for the planning of care provision in Ireland in the foreseeable future and will help The Carers Association to provide a more informed service to its members.
