AnnotationThis paper seeks to examine two aspects of care provision by adult children, especially daughters, for their elderly infirm parent(s). Firstly, how it relates to the nature of kinship solidarity between parents and adult children during other phases of their lives. Secondly, the paper examines some of the factors responsible for the sense of individual responsibility which develops within the carer. (KJ).
