Dementia Carers Count research highlights challenges for female carers 

Research published by Dementia Carers Count (DCC), who surveyed 1,300 unpaid dementia carers, has shown that unpaid female carers are less likely than unpaid male carers to access support from local authorities (advice and information, Carer’s Assessments and funded support). 

Frances Lawrence, CEO of Dementia Carers Count said:  

“Our research shows that over half of male carers feel positive or quite positive about being a carer compared to a third of female carers. Over a third of male carers describe their mental health as good compared to a quarter of female carers. The implied links between how carers feel and the support that they are receiving cannot be ignored.”
