p>Bethel Ann Powers gives a comprehensive and thoughtful examination of the ethical issues that arise in long-term care. The first two chapters set the stage by exploring the pre-nursing home experiences of families living with dementia and, in contrast, how residents and family members experience life in the nursing home. The following chapters contain detailed hypothetical cases that include questions, possible actions, and insightful commentary to illustrate practical approaches to understanding common ethical issues affecting nursing home residents.
