The aim of the study is to clarify the concept "care for carers," and enhance our understanding of caring for carers of ill relatives. Healthcare professionals often refer to "care for carers" when discussing methods to support the carers of ill family relatives. These carers do not always receive the support they need. A literature search of electronic databases and search engines, using the keywords carer, caregiver, caring for the carer, caring for the caregiver was done. Peer-reviewed research articles published between 2014 and 2019 and written in the English language were analyzed.
