The European voice for informal carers

The impact of caregiving on informal carers’ mental and physical health

The correlation between caregiving and physical and mental health is well established. In particular, research has highlighted the negative consequences on carers’ health, by focusing on the stress and burden associated with caregiving. This publication takes stock of the existing knowledge concerning the physical and psychological strain caused by informal care as well as the secondary stress it creates in other life domains such as work and family relationships. The document also proposes measures to support carers’ health and wellbeing.
