Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to improve the quality of life for individuals who provide unpaid informal care.
It's all part of making a better world.
This will ensure that informal care can continue to be provided to the aging society with a reduction to the detrimental impacts to unpaid informal careers, including their health, wellbeing and finances and relationships.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by individuals who unpaid inform care to the aging population. Wider groups who are going to benefit include those in receipt of informal care, health care professionals, family members of informal carers, and employers and colleagues of informal carers across the UK.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Increase in the number of informal careers who engage with health care professionals to address the negative impact on their physical health and mental health.
Reduction in the number of carers aged 18 to 64 years old had to cease working because of their caring
Increased understanding and support from GPs and healthcare staff including regular health checks for unpaid informal carers.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
National statistics comparision regarding employment. Employment exit reasons data. The design and analysis of the national UK Careers week survey - comparison with previous results. Increase in number of carers registered on GPs register of careers. Health care statistics for carers engagement with health services. Revision of health care training and practice guidelines to provide regular health checks.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
