The real cost of caring

A study by Dimbleby Cancer Care has looked at the real impact on those caring for a loved one in the last three months of life. As well as the emotional impact of looking after a loved on, carers can provide up to 10-16 hours per day of informal care and have an average of £370 out of pocket expenditure often on medical equipment and care supplies.
