Malta has an extensive formal care provision. In the field of ageing there
is a wide range of services available for the elderly and for their carers
aimed at improving the quality of life of the elderly while maintaining
them in their own homes, community and environment. However, the majority
of care for the elderly is still provided by the family members. This
publication is the first nation-wide report concerning the state of family
members taking care of older relatives in the Maltese Islands. It
investigates the socio-economic conditions of these carers while analysing
their changing role and status, their needs and problems resulting from
the various changes which Maltese society and family are passing through.
