Burden of care on close relatives

6th Aug 2016

AASW life member and director of the Living with Disability Research Centre at La Trobe University, Professor Christine Bigby, is cited in a Good Weekend article, The Burden of Care, by Fiona Harari.

The article highlights that the burden of care of Australia's nearly 700,000 people with intellectual disability invariably falls on close relatives who are 'forever on duty'.
