AnnotationPrivate homes are unique among caring agencies, insofar as they pursue profit alongside care, on which this paper focuses. The full report on which this research is based has been published by the Polytechnic of North London as `The business of care: a study of private residential homes for old people'. This shorter report - also based on research carried out in ten homes in Norfolk - examines how private homes practise the policy of caring for profit, and the repercussions for residents, staff, and proprietors, and the effects on the physical environment.
