Care Alliance Ireland have published a literature review on the relationship between Family Carers and Home Care Support Workers. The report brings together all the key research on the topic in a concise, considered and comprehensive manner.

Speaking at the launch, Dr Gerry McCaffrey said;

'This piece of work is a major contribution to Family Carer research and in particular an aspect often overlooked – that is the triadic and often interdependent relationship between a paid home care worker, a client in need of support and the wider family. We look forward to building on this work into the future”.
