The first part of the thesis consists of a theoretical grounding of the issues of family care and support, which is provided to the carers. It also covers topics related to the altered role of carer (eg motivation for care, needs and difficulties of carers). The theoretical part of the thesis is supplemented by a chapter dealing with the gender issues of carers and the whole section summarizes possible sources of support for carers focusing on self-help groups.

At first, 20 semi- structured interviews with carers - 10 men and 10 women were carried out. In a special part, the use of...
