This book provides a critique of the theoretical concept of caring, carers and caregivers. Material is based on emperical evidence from recent studies with adultes with acquired chronic illnesses, including terminal illness. The emperical data within the book has been gathered from the perspective of those providing personal, domestic or emotional care to others already known to them by virtue of kinship co-habitation or friendchip, rather than carers organised on a professional of voluntary basis. This new evidence is used to make suggestions about possible ways forward within health & social care practice.
