The image of care

What do you think the current image of care is like? You are clearly going to get different views depending on what you read and where you read it. The day to day lives of carers, paid and unpaid, are rarely covered in the media outside the ‘trade press’ (Community Care magazine and careandhealth.com)

At careimages.com we want to hear your views on care. Are you a service user receiving care, or do you provide care? Do you work in the care sector? Do you have a professional or academic interest in care?

Please tell us what you think the image of care is in the UK today. Is the way care is portrayed in brochures in your doctor’s surgery or CABs accurate? How does care look? And is the way it looks different to the reality in practice?
