This study aims to draw attention to one aspect of the old-age phenomenon that has become increasingly visible in Turkey, namely to elderly care and caregiving. The services related to elderly care are increasingly becoming an informal employment area. As the concentration of the demand for caregiver employment or service procurement for elderly care increase, various problems/victimizations arise in the relationship between the relatives of the elderly who are at the employer position and the caregivers as employees. The study is based on data attained with a qualitative research technique and aims to explore the problems and victimizations experienced between caregivers and family members. 15 elderly relatives and 15 elderly caregivers are interviewed. The interviews are recorded with a voice recorder and the data is converted to text. Problems related to reaching the caregivers, social rights, the ambiguity of the job definition, maintenance burden and insufficient level of education are identified between the elderly relatives and caregivers as major findings.
