This is the only collection of its kind to offer an inside view of life and work in contemporary nursing homes with the purpose of developing a theory of the culture of long term care. The anthropological research in nursing homes presented here produces a seldom seen native view of patients, staff, and the day-to-day workings of American nursing homes. The use of ethnographic methods penetrates the reality barriers found in industry descriptions, muck-raking discourse, and general societal aversion toward nursing homes. The tensions found between and within staff culture and patient culture are explored in terms of adaptations to institutional life in the context of current policy and the larger American ageist culture.

"This book offers many insights into the inner workings of a nursing home, the care of aging in general, and the effect of providing that care on the community. It is a rich resource for social workers, offering innovative ways to frame and explore different aspects of caretaking. The ethnographic lens provides a unique framework to study lives of the people in the community who are affected by the institutional provision of care to the elderly. This collection provides a full engaging study of the topic."-Social Work in Health Care
