Psychosocial care and support for older carers of orphaned and vulnerable children: Policy guidelines
In recognition of the need to address the psychosocial needs of older caregivers HelpAge collaborated with REPSSI to develop Policy Guidelines for Psychosocial Care and Support for Older Carers of Orphaned and Vulnerable Children affected by HIV and AIDS. The Policy Guidelines document is intended to offer a concise description of the concept of psychosocial support and how it relates to older careers of orphaned and vulnerable children in a time of HIV and AIDS. It offers recommended strategic focus areas which may be used to influence policies which provide support for older carers. Policy makers may find the guidelines helpful in providing ideas to effect changes that will improve the wellbeing of older carers.
