Role of the family/carer in acute care – are we asking too much?

Hi, Alex posted this comment and question:-

Hi very new to this so hope this works. I just have a question to throw out there.
Are we asking too much of carers? We provide a lot of acute community care, for some Service users they live with families or families have to come together at times of acute needs to support services to manage people at home.  Is this a lot to ask?
Expecting family to take on this extra support role is sometimes too much and this in turn changes family/friendship relations ships.

How might we do things differently?

sorry for the ramble hope this makes sense.
