As the baby boom generation enters retirement age, greater numbers of people eventually will enter nursing homes. Portraying people who have lived in worked in long-term facilities, and family members struggling with nursing home issues, "Elder Care Catastrophe" reveals how organizational dynamics and everyday rituals have unintentionally led to resident neglect and abuse. It is the only book on nursing homes to use systematic research and sociological theory to understand different types of nursing home maltreatment. The book provides critical information to any lay person, nursing home employee, policymaker, student or researcher concerned with elder care issues, and offers alternative models for lessening the maltreatment of people living in nursing homes.
