Relieving the burden of family care

Family carers are not always aware of the possibilities of support by volunteer workers. Volunteer workers who help family carers don't always realize that the situation they are working in is quite unique. In fact, they are helping two people: the person who needs care, and the family carer. The project ‘Relieving the burden of family care’ was initiated to develop practical instruments to support volunteer effort for family carers. The instruments were tested by organizations for volunteer care and are described in a series of guides.
