AnnotationThis volume contains the background materials for "The residential life of old people: a study in local authority homes: vol I". The study, commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Security (DHSS), examined the views of 1,000 older residents and 400 members of staff in 100 local authority residential care homes on their accommodation and physical environment. The aim was to explore the interrelationship between the social, organisational, and physical environment which constitute residential life. The first appendix in this volume contains a detailed description of the methodology used in the study. The following appendices contain frequency counts for the measuring instruments used in the study: the Inspector Checklist; Interviewer Checklist; Neighbourhood Questionnaire; Resident Questionnaire; Staff Questionnaire; and Local Authority Questionnaire. Measures of resident dependency, resident environmental preferences, and institutional regime are also included, as are a distribution of residents and staff for each of the homes studies, and a bibliography.
