Everyone has different experiences of caring and carers come from a diversity of differing lifestyles and circumstances. Some carers have a passion to help others and will provide unconditional amounts of care and time not only to their direct family, but also to neighbours, friends and members of the community. However, in some cases, carers feel they have a duty to provide care for the individual because it?s their partner, sibling or parent and can see it as more of a burden.
