Description:
The purpose of this paper is less to answer questions than to ask them, and less to define ‘carers’ than to understand who they are. In particular, its purpose is to ask why the label ‘family carer’ may be rejected by some of them, or by particular groups who traditionally were thought of as needing such care from family members. In contrast, many family carers find solace and support in claiming the identity of ‘family carer’. The acceptance or rejection of the term itself can have a huge impact on whether the supports which are available to Family Carers in Ireland are in fact available to all those providing care, or just to those who accept the term as a descriptor of their situation.
Keywords:
CARERS; FAMILY
