The difficulties and rewards of being a carer for a family member.
A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a parents , relative, partner who is ill, frail, disabled or vulnerable. (Directgov,2006)
Becoming a carer is a life changing decision, often happening without much thought being given to the possible consequences. Anyone can become a carer; come from all walks of life, all cultures and can be of any age.
Many feel they are doing what anyone else would in the same situation; looking after their parents, children or relative .
The aim of this essay is to discuss the difficulties and rewards that being a carer for a family member. The discussion will points out and   illustrated by a case studies found within unit 1.   The story of   Ann Walker , who care for her father Angus McPhail
The following difficulties Ann Walker   face   was.

• Strain on Your Marriage ( Ann   spend all your free time taking care of Angus   and neglecting the needs of your spouse an daughter.
For what I’ve seen in the case study of Ann   when caring with Angus the fact she does not recognize herself as a carer. Struggling to manage her life and time   as wife, mother and daughter neglecting the other needs of   the family member   that cause of conflicts base in the case study.

Some factors to consider as positive side for caring for a family member   shows   the person who is frail,vulnerable (like in the case study Angus knows Ann)
