Supporting the voluntary and community sector to contribute to the development and delivery of adult health and social care services in Rotherham

The Adult Carer Quality of Life Questionnaire (AC-QoL) has been produced by the Princess Royal Trust for Carers and is a simple instrument for use with adult carers.  It measures quality of life in eight separate domains:

  • support for caring
  • caring choice
  •  caring stress
  • money matters
  • personal growth
  • sense of value
  • ability to care
  • carer satisfaction

The questionnaire can be used on a single occasion in order to assess quality of life at the time of administration. In addition, the questionnaire is likely to be useful to assess the effectiveness of interventions. It can be easily administered before and after an intervention in order to evaluate whether the intervention has had an effect.
