(p.63) 6 Attitudes toward Nursing Homes
Growing Old in Egypt

Thomas Boggatz

American University in Cairo Press

This chapter discusses the attitudes of nursing-home residents toward nursing homes. This attitude has been previously reported, and statistics on the utilization of nursing homes confirm these observations, as they report numbers slightly under capacity, contradicting the estimated need for care. These investigations revealed a variety of factors that contribute to the acceptance or rejection of a particular kind of care. All factors may contribute in some cases to an acceptance, in other cases to a rejection, of nursing homes. Their influence depends on interaction with other factors. Some factors, however, may be more influential than others. The qualitative findings in this chapter help in the identification of these different factors or aspects, but preclude judgments about their relative importance.

Keywords:   nursing-homes residents, statistics, nursing homes, qualitative findings, judgments
