This chapter reviews the key social and cultural dimensions that influence family carers, also noting how less recognized influences, such as hidden relationships, might be important influences on family care behaviour. It argues for a public health response to family care that goes beyond direct service provision. It argues that health promotion, community development, and service partnerships are crucial to enhancing and supporting family carers.

Keywords:   caregivers, palliative care, family care, public health, health promotion, community development, service partnerships
