Toward a Better Understanding of the Social Adjustment of Old People: Some Contradictions and Conflicting Concepts
The author examines the social-psychological environment in residential care facilities for the elderly, finding that these social and hierarchical dynamics demonstrate conflicting concepts of what old age signifies, and what it means for social interaction. He examines differential staff attitudes, and differences in social perception between staff and residents.
