Carers across the UK are being pushed to their mental and physical limits as they struggle to care for older or disabled loved ones. Carers UK’s “Carers at breaking point” research shows:
- 6 in 10 carers are now at breaking point – suffering from exhaustion, stress and anxiety
- A quarter of these carers have been made so ill they have needed medical treatment
- 63% of carers suffered depression and 79% reported high levels of anxiety.
