DESK REVIEW | 08.02.05. Does the country have any employment policies for unpaid/family carers?

No. No such policies were found on this regard.

There are currently no employment policies in place to accommodate carer needs. Caregivers often have to cut back on paid work in order to meet care demands (Prince & 10/66 Dementia Research Group, 2004) and are usually not compensated for this.
