This chapter traces the development of nursing home and residential care in Great Britain. It discusses the development of care homes during the past twenty-five years and describes the nature of the people and the places that make up these long-term care services for older people. It reflects on how the culture of care has evolved within these settings and how issues regarding dying and death have only relatively recently been recognized as key aspects of the purpose of long-term care.

Keywords:   nursing homes, residential care homes, Great Britain, older people, long-term care
