Résumé :

This article examines the conversational processes that give rise to the construction of the identity in families caring for relatives with dementia. The data comprised tape recordings of 24 semi-structured interviews between the researcher and informal carers for people who had been diagnosed as having dementia. The interviews were fully transcribed. The transcripts were analysed using techniques drawn from conversation analysis and discourse analysis. The analysis identified four forms of story within the accounts: pre-onset stories, recognition stories, searching stories and dependency stories. It was found that these stories allowed inferences about the identity of family members and were used as a means of accomplishing informal care. The article argues that through these inferences the identities of particular family members are progressively transformed into 'the person with dementia' and 'the informal carer'. The implications of these findings for education and training are discussed.
