Everyday Ethics in Dementia Day Care: Narratives of Crossing the Line.
Hasselkus, Betty Risteen
Gerontologist, v37 n5 p640-49 Oct 1997
Examines the ethical aspects of the experience of providing day care to dementia patients. Results, based on telephone interviews (N=40), indicate that ethical challenges arise in everyday incidents when participants, staff, or family members "cross the line" of acceptable behavior. Staff responses ranged from benign manipulation to termination of day care. (RJM)
