Interdependency and Care over the Lifecourse draws upon theories
of time and space to consider how informal care is woven into the
fabric of everyday lives and is shaped by social and economic
inequalities and opportunities.
The book comprises three parts. The first explores contrasting
social and economic contexts of informal care in different parts of
the world. The second looks at different themes and dynamics of
caring, using fictional vignettes of illness and health, child
care, elderly care and communities of care. The book examines the
significance to practices of care throughout the lifecourse of:
- understandings and expectations of care
- emotional exchanges involved in care
- memories and anticipations of giving and receiving care
- the social nature of the spaces and places in which care is
- the practical time-space scheduling necessary to caring
Finally the authors critically examine how the frameworks of
caringscapes and carescapes might be used in research, policy and
practice. A working example is provided.
This book will be of interest to students and researchers of
care work, health and social care, geography, sociology of the
family and social policy as well as those in business and policy
communities trying to gain an understanding of how work and
informal care interweave.
