This qualitative in-depth interview study conducted in participants'homes documents the daily lives and types of home care needed by 75 chronically ill elderly people in three cities in the People's Republic of China.
It examines the severity of their illnesses and the problems experienced by their caregivers.
The nature and impact of this caregiving on these family members are explored and questions are raised about this caregiving role, given the increased numbers of older people and the now smaller extended families in China.
