As discussed in the last chapter, the implications of living in a service system discussed in the last chapter has significant effects on family carers. This chapter looks at the physical, emotional and psychological effects on carers, highlighting the social and spatial experiences of being in such a landscape of care. Concepts of space and place are shown to be helpful in understanding issues and experiences of caregiving. As Wiles (2003) argues, the social and the physical aspects of the many interconnected scales and places which caregivers negotiate on an everyday basis both shape and are shaped by caregiving.
