The people talking on the audio clips identified a range of different reactions to their experiences as carers. At the beginning of the first clip, you heard a woman say, ‘I find the term “carer” acceptable now, but initially I didn't’. However, other people had had experiences which had left them more ambivalent.
These matters are discussed in greater detail in Sections 3.2 and 3.3.
