'Normal disruption': South Asian and African/Caribbean relatives caring for an older family member in the UK

Little has been written on informal care of an older relative among minority ethnic groups in the UK. This paper examines the meanings of being an informal carer of an older family member for South Asian and African/Caribbean carers. The analysis presented here is based on qualitative interviews with 21 African/Caribbean and 15 South Asian carers. Drawing primarily on the notions of biographical continuity, biographical reinforcement and biographical disruption, the meanings of caring are examined.
