About this event
The main theme of this workshop will be on long-term and informal care. As populations age, the demand for long-term care services (such as nursing services, personal care, and domestic tasks) is expected to continue rising. It is recognised that such services are essential to the welfare of many older people. Most long-term care for the elderly is currently provided by informal carers, often family members. Such caregivers face many challenges, including balancing family and employment with their caregiving responsibilities.
