The study also showed that there is a lot of caring and thought in small actions. Things that might be hard to reflect on by yourself can appear very significant when someone detached observes it. The analysis was based on different theories about caring, focused on the relationship between caregivers and caretakers, and on the caregiving work itself. (Less)
