Throughout the pandemic, our frontline workers have been putting themselves at risk to help keep others safe and have rightly been regarded as heroes.
Home carers, who spend each day taking care of their loved ones, have become the unsung heroes of the lockdown. Their work is often invisible to those outside of their own families.
Sharon Myers is a carer for her nine-year-old son Noah and founder of the #MakeCarersVisible campaign, which provides carers with a chance to share their stories and their hopes for the future.
She joined us on The Last Word along with Lee Tynan, carer for her husband Garth, and Trish O'Neill, who cares for her seven-year-old son Conor, to talk about their experiences.
