  • What does research tell us about short breaks? New report from Shared Care Scotland

    Created: 24/10/2019

    Short breaks can be a lifeline for people with significant caring roles who may struggle to maintain a life of their own, with consequences for health, wellbeing and quality of life. A new research report commissioned by Shared Care Scotland explores existing evidence about the vital role played by short breaks and respite care in families where there are significant caring responsibilities. The literature review was undertaken by Diane Seddon and Louise Prendergast of the Wales Centre for Ageing and Dementia Research at Bangor University and tells us what the evidence says about outcomes for carers.
