Palliative Care for Non-cancer Patients

This chapter first attempts to define informal care. It then reviews the sources of stress and satisfaction associated with looking after a dependant in order to understand the milieu of care. Many of the issues relating to carers of cancer patients may well be common to other carers irrespective of the disease the patient is suffering. Lastly, it suggests areas where informal carers and their dependants could be better served by health and social care services.

Keywords:   informal care, patient care, informal caring, caregivers
