This encyclopedia entry explores the core themes and debates relating to the concept Voluntary care, which involves all the activities carried out by families, advocates, volunteers, and those involved in local associations and voluntary organizations for persons deemed in need of support. It can include physical tasks, emotional support, advocacy, motivation, and empowerment. It is often assumed to be given freely by volunteers and caregivers (often women) and to occur ‘naturally’ in the community
