  • Who is a “Family Carer” |
    who is in need of that care in the home due to illness or disability or frailty Family Carers provide a unique and dedicated service to their families and communities They have the right to be recognised and respected for the important contribution to society Family Carers generally have an emotional relationship and legal responsibility for the person for whom they are caring They undertake responsibility for the management of the persons care welfare and social needs over time and in many cases for years It is critical that the needs of Family Carers are articulated to those with responsibility for the development of policies that directly or indirectly impact on their lives and for those for whom they care People who are providing a significant amount of care often do not recognise themselves as Family Carers and need to be encouraged to do so in order to empower them to access services and supports to meet their own needs and those for whom they care Recognition of the role and contribution of the Family Carer is critically important Grouping paid and unpaid carers under the term carer obscures and obstructs access to services and supports for the Family Carer The continued use of the term Carer further isolates and excludes Family Carers from receiving much needed support from their families communities and the State Policy makers and decision makers need to recognise the role of Family Carers which is undertaken in the home unseen and unheard often seen as women s work Therefore it is important that in identifying the Family Carer and their unique role that this will help in bringing improved clarity to this role and how it differs from that of the paid care worker Family Carers have the right to be recognised for the central role which they play in community care and in creating a community of caring Carers Charter Caring for Carers Ireland 1991 Whether caring for a child or a parent with a disability or illness or an elderly family member carers through their selfless hard work knowledge and compassion enhance the quality of life of thousands on a daily basis We want to send a strong message to carers that we recognise and value their immense contributions to the well being of the people that they care for A key objective of Government policy for older people children and adults with an illness or a disability is to support them to live in dignity and independence in their own homes and communities for as long as possible Family Carers are vital to the achievement of this objective and are considered a backbone of care provision in Ireland For some a lack of recognition and respect of their work can lead to a sense of disconnection from society and from opportunities that people take for granted Carers have an expert knowledge of the person and of the condition of the person for whom they are caring However many can feel that this
