Carers have cropped up in the many of the publications and reports reviewed for this online resource. Several of the reports identify support for carers as an important topic for policy and service provision, supported by findings from studies on the costs of dementia which show that much of the cost of care falls on family carers. The publications reviewed show that alongside people with dementia, health care professionals, and the general public, family carers of people with dementia responded to surveys and participated in interviews and roundtable discussion, providing valuable information and views on a range of topics, for example, their attitudes to care homes or housing issues. Several publications grapple with the question of how best to support family carers and their relatives with dementia. However, only one report focused specifically on family carers and what it is like for them when a relative they are caring for is admitted to a nursing home. This report is summarised below.
