Drawing on carer narratives from research undertaken in New Zealand, this paper considers the interrelationship between place and the care-giving experience. In doing so, it considers: first, how informal carers of older people experience the transition in the place of care from the home to care homes; second, how they negotiate new identities for themselves as carers in these new care settings; and third, carers’ views on how we might develop more inclusive models of care in care home settings. While much current work on care-giving in the home highlights the blurring of the boundaries between formal and informal care-giving, this paper suggests that the blurring of the boundaries of care may also be manifest in an increased penetration of informal care-giving within the semi-public space of the residential care home.
