Is community care really cost-effective? This monograph breaks new ground by stepping inside the households of informal carers. Drawing on an in-depth study of people looking after very frail elderly and disabled relatives, it describes the impact on carers' employment and earnings, evaluates the effectiveness of social security provision for carers, and examines how far the incomes of disabled people and carers actually cover the extra costs of disablement and care-giving. It concludes that, with the growing emphasis on informal carers in delivering "care in the community", employment policies, services and social security provision all need to address more closely the financial costs currently borne by individual carers, at the risk of their own long-term impoverishment.
