Abstract

This article explores some of the issues involved in using nominally paid, locally-recruited helpers in the provision of services to dependent elderly people. Using data drawn from a study of the perceptions on one group of such helps on an experimental community care project, it is argued that some of the actions and attitudes of helpers, social workers, and elderly clients could be better understood and interpreted in the light of insights derived from the literature on social exchange.
