|dc.description||This study, Caring for the Elderly, Part I: A Study of Carers at Home and in the Community is Part One of a research programme on family carersof elderly persons in the Republic of.Ireland which was initiated by the National Council for the Aged in 1985. While the role of the family in providing care for elderly. persons has been frequently referred to by academics and policy-makers,.this is the first time that an attempt has been made to quantify the nature and extent of family care of elderly persons within an Irish context. This is a baseline study, descriptive in nature, which provides a profile of carers in the community and a database for further exploration of the.caring process. Part Two of the study, The Caring Process: A Study of Carers in the Home, which provides an in-depth picture of all aspects of caring for elderly persons within households will be published by the Council later, in 1988. The Council will make detailed comments and recommendations on the caring issue in the report of Part Two of the Study.||en_GB|
