dc.description.abstract To date, much of the research conducted in the area of informal family care concentrates on either those in receipt of care or those engaged in active caregiving roles; consequently, there is a dearth of information and research that comprehensively examines the ‘post care’ stage of the caregiving career. This study, in collaboration with The Carers Association, aims to make a contribution to the limited research pool regarding former carers, through an in-depth exploration of the post care transition and an investigation of the factors that support or impede a positive reconstruction of life post care. Through the medium of seven semi-structured interviews, this research examines the issues that confront and exist for those who may evolve into a post caring role, largely an evolution of which is outside of their control. It is aspired that this study will highlight the necessity for a social and political response in order to make advancements towards alleviating the challenges faced by former carers in Irish society. The culmination of comparable studies and reiterated recommendations could, in time, feed into social and governmental policy with regard to the acknowledgement, treatment and social protection of former carers and ultimately, contribute towards combating the developing marginalisation of this cohort of individuals. en
