Anil Patil is the Founder and Executive Director at Carers Worldwide. Experiences in his professional and personal life led him to establish the organisation in 2012. Carers Worldwide develops and promotes cost effective, sustainable and easily replicable methods of providing support to carers in low and middle income countries. They are the only organisation working exclusively and strategically with unpaid family carers in the developing world. Since 2012, their work has impacted the lives of over 3,500 carers in Nepal and India.
As part of the #Caring4Carers series, we met with Anil where he provided us with an insight in to his own caring experiences along with the experiences of families he has helped.
Powerfully delivered, Anil discusses the global issues surrounding caregivers. He explains how more should be done academically to educate society on the unpaid army of caregivers to support their recognition, value & well-being.
