Want to learn more about ESCAPE and being a patient with multimorbidity and how ESCAPE will support patients and their Carers - attend the EAPM conference #eapm #multimorbidity #Escape https://twitter.com/escapeprojecteu/status/1530124266892673025

As a carer, we often don't get asked what has worked or not worked for us when supports are being developed. In this short survey http://bit.ly/SurveyOSGFamilyCaregivers we are asking family carers experience of online support groups, whether you are involved in one or not. #carers #research https://twitter.com/DaynesKearney/status/1528665503761408000

If you are a family carer, do you use online support groups? Please click https://bit.ly/SurveyOSGFamilyCaregivers for this short survey. If yes share your experience. If not tell us why not. @CarersIreland @CareAllianceIrl @Eurocarers_info @CarersWorldwide @NA4Caregiving RT welcome

@DaynesKearney @CarersIreland @CareAllianceIrl @Eurocarers_info @CarersWorldwide @NA4Caregiving Do you provide unpaid help or support to a family member or relatives?

If you have 15 min to spare, we would love if you could help us by completing our caregiver social network survey. Click link above

Thanks in advance!

EUROCARERS is the European network representing informal carers and their organisations, irrespective of their age or the particular health and care need of the person they are caring for.

Our aim is to advance the issue of informal care at both national and EU levels by:

  • RAISING AWARENESS OF THE SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION MADE BY CARERS to health and social care systems and the economy as a whole, and of the need to safeguard this contribution;
  • ENSURING THAT EU AND NATIONAL POLICIES TAKE ACCOUNT OF CARERS, i.e. promote social inclusion of carers, the development of support services for carers, enable them to remain active in paid employment and maintain a social life.

Eurocarers defines a carer as a person who provides – usually – unpaid care to someone with a chronic illness, disability or other long lasting health or care need, outside a professional or formal framework.

Eurocarers is involved in the following projects
