This chapter focuses on nursing home care for the elderly. It begins with an overview of the goals, approaches, and types of interventions that characterize special programs in nursing home settings. It then reviews recent programs and practice innovations, focusing on initiatives aimed at improving overall quality of resident life. A conceptual framework for patient-responsive care in nursing homes is developed to guide future initiatives as well as identify neglected areas that require intervention.
