MPS: Adult carers


Smiling older woman accepts assistance from her adult son.

Adult carer definition: A carer is an adult who provides or intends to provide care and/or support to another adult or adults, unpaid and not as part of a volunteering or other formal scheme.

Services are commissioned for carers to enable them to care safely and effectively, and to achieve their own most important outcomes. These might include, for example, looking after any children they have responsibility for, maintaining relationships with other family members or having a break to enable them to rest and recover their strength and energy.
