Through focus groups and an anonymous online survey we gathered feedback from nearly 100 carers. Their thoughts and feelings have been collated in two booklets. The first booklet is for carers. The aim of this booklet is to let carers know that they are not alone in their experience. The second booklet is for anyone who works with carers of people with dementia. The purpose of this booklet is to give professionals an understanding of what carers can experience.
