Young carers
  • Children, adolescents and young adults
  • From minor help to significant role in care
  • Czech social policy ignores this group
Senior carers
  • Population aging means the increase of seniors both requiring and providing care
  • Care can elevate risks connected to age (e.g. social isolation or health)
  • Care significantly limits the carer's ability to utilize activities and programs from the active ageing policy
  • The issue of senior carers has not been systematically addressed so far
