Indigenous carers /

by Hill, Trish | Australia. Department of Social Services | Cass, Bettina | Newton, B.J | Valentine, Kylie.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Commonwealth Government 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographic references pp. 107-112Summary: The 2006 Census of Population and Housing identifies the rate of informal care giving in the Indigenous population as 13.2 per cent, compared with 11.2 per cent in the non-Indigenous population. Women and young people in Indigenous communities had relatively high rates of informal caring. These rates of informal caring in Indigenous communities identified by the census are likely to be an underestimate as many people in Indigenous communities may not identify as a 'carer'. Instead, they see their care-giving relationships as a natural extension of family life, with its duties and responsibilities to kin. In addition, caring tasks are usually shared among various family and community members, so it is unlikely that families will be able to identify for service providers any single person who qualifies as the carer of someone with a disability, or as the primary carer. The greater prevalence of informal care giving among Indigenous people aged up to 54 years has been attributed to higher rates of disability, long-term health conditions and the earlier onset of chronic illnesses among the Indigenous population.Availability: (1)

Individual budgets pilot projects : impact and outcomes for carers. /

by Glendinning, Caroline | Buckmaster, Luke.

Publisher: York, U.K. Social Policy Research Unit, University of York 2009Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.york.ac.uk/inst/spru/research/pdf/IBSENCarersRep.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:30:04 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: Individual Budgets (IBs), piloted in 13 English local authorities, aimed to give greater flexibility, choice and control. Although primarily intended to benefit chronically sick, disabled and older people, IBs could also be expected to affect their carers. This study investigated the impact of IBs on carers in terms of assessment, support planning, costs and outcomes. Main findings include: > When carers of people with IBs were compared with carers of people using conventional services, IBs were significantly associated with positive impacts on carers' reported quality of life and, when other factors were taken into account, with social care outcomes. Positive outcomes for carers partly reflected being more able to engage in activities of their choice. IBs assessment and support planning offered more opportunities for carers' involvement than conventional social care practice. Sites varied in how help from carers was treated in calculating the monetary value of service users' IBs." -- SPRUAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Invisible care : access to carer payment and carer allowance by Victorian carers of a person with a mental illness /

by Ilsley, Ben | Carers Victoria.

Edition: 2nd. ed.Publisher: Footscray, Vic. Carers Victoria 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2013 Includes bibliographic references pp. 166-168 Carers Victoria ReportSummary: For most Australians who find themselves in a caring role for a family member or friend, daily responsibilities often throw up challenges that can be exhausting emotionally, psychologically and financially. Carer Payment and Carer Allowance are social security payments from Centrelink that are specifically for people in caring roles but carers of a person with a mental illness have long held that it is difficult for them to access these payments. They have consistently cited several factors that impede their access to the payments. These include the design of the assessment tool used to determine eligibility, consent issues, bureaucratic complexity and difficulties arising from caring for a person with an episodic condition. These difficulties are well known to mental health carer support groups and carer organisations across Australia; however, the evidence needed to effect real change has been anecdotal and piecemeal. That is until now. This report documents the findings and analysis of a thorough investigation into the issues and experiences of a sample of Victorian carers of a person with a mental illness.Availability: (1)
