The costs of informal care

By Ann Netten

Abstract

<p>The paper starts by identifying the imbalance in the level of information about the costs of care in the informal and formal<p><p>sectors. The theoretical issues in the costing of the unpaid contribution of informal carers and the methodological implications of estimating costs to society or to individual carers are identified. An approach to costing informal care is described and then applied to in a study of elderly people and their carers receiving community based social care in ten local authorities.\ud \u
