Modern times: an ethnographic study on the quality of life of people with a high support need in a Flemish residential facility

Taylor and Francis,

This ethnographic study shows the impact of the care system on clients’ and staff’s life experiences, with the clear distance between these two groups as one of the core issues. Together with a dominant care approach and a well established but subtile system of control, it makes them function in systems that are characterized by an oppressing care culture. Learned helplessness prevents both groups of acting upon quality of life outcomes. The idea of supporting a life of good quality through merely improving these traditional care systems should therefore be considered with caution, and real alternatives should be considered to open this barrier of the oppressing care culture.

Among the issues confronting America is long term care for older people and others with chronic conditions and disabilities that limit their ability to care for themselves. This book takes a comprehensive look at the quality of care and quality of life in long term care situations, including nursing homes, home health agencies, residential care facilities, and a range of other settings. It describes the current state of long term care, identifying problem areas and offering recommendations for federal and state policy makers. It also explores the strengths and limitations of available data and research literature especially for settings other than nursing homes, on methods to measure, oversee, and improve the quality of long term care.
