The purpose of this research was to experience more closely the reality of the job of the caregivers of a Therapeutic Residence (TRS) to get to know this category and contribute for discussions on the Psychiatric Reform and the deinstitutionalization of insanity. The participants were six caretakers of a TRS in Espírito Santo, Brazil. Semi-structured interviews and participant observation were used. The caretakers worked previously on common services basically, without a higher level of complexity, and relationship with the area of Health. The participants informed that although they had no professional formation in the area of Health, they did feel prepared for the service. They learn how to deal with situations in the day to day work, specially those with which they manifested a higher concern. It is necessary to know which types of care practices are being utilized by caretakers, and it is essential to discuss the level of attention given to the caretakers.
