Synopsis:

This volume features ten scholars from anthropology, nursing, sociology, gerontology, human geography, and other disciplines who provide ethnographic case studies exploring critical care decision-making, models of care for people with Alzheimer's disease, the way residents cope with the limitations, indignities, and opportunities of nursing home life, the roles of family members and nursing home employees, and the formulation of assisted living. The authors offer sustained examinations of the settings, flow, and structure of life relationships in geriatric long-term care institutions, as well as significant innovations in ethnographic methods. Researchers, caregivers, and those attentive to their own quality of life as they age will find this book essential reading.

Review: This edited volume represents a cutting-edge overview of ethnographic research on nursing homes... This volume will be especially useful in courses on aging or seminars on the anthropology of aging, gerontological sociology, psychology and aging, geriatric social work, and nursing. Moreover, this collection of articles should be must reading not only for gerontological researchers and scholars, but for those who work with the elderly in nursing homes and those who are frequent visitors of relatives residing in such homes. --Tony Miranda, Journal of Anthropological Research 61 (2005)

The essays are theoretically sophisticated and analytically thorough.... --Todd Meyers, Medical Anthropology Quarterly
