English abstract:
Dependency research in informal care has a long history. Studies within
this area usually focus on the dependencies that care receivers have in relation
to those providing the care: the informal carers. They usually take for granted
the dependencies that informal care brings upon the carers. This paper draws
attention to these important (unpaid) workers of our current society and discusses
how engaging in caring can constrain one of their most valued personal attribute:
their independency. Not only that, the paper discusses how coordinated care can
come to the rescue of some of this independency, introducing a few simple but yet
effective ICT solutions that can create opportunities for it. The findings presented
in this paper come from rich ethnographic data collected within TOPIC, a European
AAL joint project conducted across Austria, France and Germany. Finally, we show
our research framework in the setting of informal care with the complexity and
dimensions in human and non-human supported caring activities.
