Abstract

Informal carers have a pivotal role in caring for patients who have had a stroke. Research has shown that informal carers have unmet information, psychological and social needs. There is a lack of research about how informal carers in Northern Ireland manage the role of caring for a patient who has experienced stroke, and what kind of support they need and receive. This literature review explores the experiences of informal carers providing stroke care in the home. The issues highlighted in the article are relevant worldwide, because the incidence of stroke is increasing in developed and developing countries.
