Description:
Stress and fatigue among carers of older people is a problem that can lead to depression and the breakdown of the care provided. In order to explore the potential contribution of telecare in helping carers of older people, CARDI funded the development of a research network in 2009. It was led by Brigid Barron of Caring for Carers Ireland to assess the impact of telecare on carers of older people in terms of reducing stress and increasing quality of life. This research brief is based on the findings of the network as well as CARDI’s own research in this area.
