Aim To explore caregivers' perspectives on ethics in older people's residential and domiciliary social care. Method Seventeen staff working in domiciliary and residential care were divided into four focus groups and invited to share their perspectives on 'ethical' or 'good' care, the ethical issues that arise in their care practice, and barriers and enablers for ethical care.
