This book reports on the findings of an international team of 26 researchers and more than 50 graduate students who went to six countries in a search for promising practices in long term residential care for the elderly. It presents concrete examples of how long term care might be organized and undertaken in more promising ways that respect the needs of residents, families, workers and managers. Using statistical data that confirms Canada can afford the same promising care found in other countries, the book provides ideas on how we might re-imagine long term care in promising and hopeful ways.
