Abstract

Many people will need support and help with their daily functioning during their adult life. The solution to this need for support might be either by using a formal or an informal care and support system. Informal care is delivered by nonprofessionals (usually family members) not paid for their duty, defined as the caregivers. The care provided by relatives requires understanding, knowledge, and skills in a wide variety of fields. In this interview, we try to shed light on the place and role of the caregiver, sometimes an invisible major player in the patient's journey.
