This project aims to give voice to the older persons. Its main objective is to understand, in depth, the caring relations from the point of view of the older persons. More specifically, we want the older persons to tell us the stories of the caring relations - informal and formal - in which they have been involved (diachronic approach): With whom have they maintained caring relations? Have they have maintained caring relations only with relatives or also with social care practitioners? What changes have taken place in those caring relations? What are the reasons and consequences of those changes? How have the caring relations been assessed? What are the emotions, evaluations, difficulties, expectations and meanings involved in those relations?
