The purpose of this study, guided by Parse's human becoming theory and research methodology, was to investigate the meaning of feeling cared for with women who are struggling with access to economic, social and interpersonal resources. Feeling cared for is a universal experience that relates to the human capacity of being able to experience significant closeness with others. This is the first study to explore feeling cared for from a unitary perspective, thus this research provides new knowledge for nursing and expands Parse's theory in relation to feeling cared for, health, and quality of life. The Parse research method is a phenomenological-hermeneutic method. The method is composed of the following processes: participant selection, dialogical engagement, extraction-synthesis, and heuristic interpretation. The research question was: What is the structure of the lived experience of feeling cared for? Through dialogical engagement with 10 women (ages 29 through 52) and the process of extraction-synthesis, three core concepts from the participant dialogues were identified. These were contentment with intimate affiliations, salutary endeavors, and honoring uniqueness amid adversity. Thus, the lived experience of feeling cared for is contentment with intimate affiliations arising with salutary endeavors that honor uniqueness amid adversity.
