Sense Survey – Achieving Long Term Independence

Sense is starting a new piece of work on achieving long term independence which is hoped to be build up into a campaign early in 2017. They are cur-rently in an intelligence gathering phase and would appreciate your support and input.

We know that family members often become the predominant carers for their loved ones. As a consequence, those being cared for may not always have the independence they would like and those providing care ask them-selves ‘what will happen to my loved one when I can no longer support them?’ This can be a major concern and cause of anxiety for many families. They want to find out how “widespread this problem is for people with complex needs and their families. Sense also want to understand how people end up in this situation and what the potential solutions could be.”

Do you or a friend/family member use care and support services? @sensetweets would like to hear from you
