This scientific article is based on the research work done by a team led by Sophie Éthier of Laval University, more specifically from the project entitled ‘The mistreatment of older caregivers and the mistreatment of older adults by their caregivers: Acknowledge, Raise Awareness and Prevent, in which Marie Beaulieu was a co-researcher.
Strengthening the development of philosophical education for caregivers of older adults is at the forefront of this text. It is more specifically a question of their ‘moral experience’ in the exercise of their roles.
Throughout the article, the theoretical model supporting the ethical and philosophical reflective activities of the group is detailed. A description of the seven stages of developing the moral responsibility associated with their roles as caregivers shapes the group’s activities.
