Informal Caregviers, Population Projections
Research aim:
The purpose of this report is to project the likely impact of particular social changes should they occur in the context of current demographic and social trends.
Shifts in carer responsibility that result from the changing availability of the group identified as primary carers will have implications for formal services and for the caring responsibility placed on others in informal networks. The effectiveness of these extended networks is dependent on the availability of relevant formal services and programs and on policies that facilitate broader community support.
