Informal care, especially of elderly people, is becoming an increasingly common social role: at present there are estimated to be around 6.8 million adults in Britain caring for sick, handicapped or elderly people. But while a considerable amount is known about caring itself, very little is known about what happens to carers once their caring responsibilities have ceased. Since care-giving can occupy time, emotions, physical and economic resources, any cessation is bound to have implications. This book reports the results of research examining the financial, employment and other circumstances of people who have at some time in the past acted as informal carers.
