    Abstract

    This first in a three-part series explores the nature of the caring relationship between caregivers and older people in nursing and residential homes. It proposes a revision of the Caring For and Caring About model. Using this model, where appropriate, staff move their care approach from a protective focus of “caring for” residents to a remedial focus of “caring about” them; the latter aims to promote self-help and autonomy as much as possible.
