Ten scholars from anthropology, nursing, sociology, gerontology, human geography, and other disciplines 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. '...brings a sense of intrigue about an issue to the attention of general anthropology and contributes substantively to the broad interdisciplinary arena of gerontology research and practice.' - Mark R.
