Arrangements for care and support which people manage for themselves or have organised for them privately or informally tell us something about the shifting borders between funded and non-funded care, between health and social care, and between paid and unpaid care work. They also demonstrate how the reality of the mixed economy of care is played out in the arrangements which people make for care and support in their own households.
On completion of this unit, you should be able to:
- understand that people who give and receive help and support depend on a mix of paid and unpaid sources.
