(p.123) Six Literature on social relations and caregiving
Ethnicity and Old Age

This chapter is the third and last chapter in the book that is based on the scoping review of scholarship on the intersection of ethnicity/ race and ageing/ old age. This chapter brings attention to social relations, social support/ help and caregiving (receiving), which is the third theme that has received the most attention when it comes to the scholarship in question. Just as it is the case with the two previous chapters, this chapter exposes the trends observed, and the ways in which ethnicity and race are made sense of in this literature. By bringing attention on the angles of investigation that this literature most often relies on (e.g. relying on others’ identification instead of own identification and the meanings attach to that), this chapter shows not only which topics have received attention, but also which ones remain unexplored.

Keywords:   Social relations, Social support, Help and support, Caregiving, Ethnicity, Race, Old age, Older people
