Alzheimer’s disease and related conditions: Health monitoring for family carers  February 2010 
KEYMSEAGSSE 
To offer an annual consultation to the family carer of a person with Alzheimer’s disease or a related condition. To pay special attention to the carer’s mental health, nutritional status and level of physical and mental autonomy. To look for any distress, anxiety and/or depressive disorders, sleeping problems, taking account of the family, social and cultural context. To check that the needs of both the family carer and the patient are met and the necessary resources made available (medical, social and financial support). 
 Definition of family carers  So-called family or informal carers are non-professionals who are the main source of support, whether fully or partly, for a person dependent on family and friends for the activities of daily living. This regular help may or may not be given on a permanent basis, and can take a number of forms such as nursing, personal care, support in the patient’s social life and in maintaining autonomy, administrative m1a tters, coordination, permanent supervision, psychological support, communications, domestic activities, etc.  
One or more carers may need to work as a team or take over from each other to care for a person suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or a related condition over the course of the illness.  Annual consultation offered to family carers  The annual consultation is time set aside specifically to focus on the health of the family carer, regardless of his or her age, the objectives of which are to prevent, identify and manage any detrimental effects on health that may result from his or her role as a carer.  The patient’s primary care doctor (PPCD) should suggest to the family carer to attend a special annual consultation if the PPCD is also the carer's regular doctor. If this is not the case, the PPCD should suggest a consultation with the carer's own primary care doctor and formalise the arrangement by giving him/her a letter for the regular doctor, in accordance with the rules of medical ethics and confidentiality.   ________________ 1According to the Euro_p_ean Charter on Family Carers, 2009.
