Review "This ethnography of an institutionalized group of aged and wealthy Anglos gives us much information and insight into the behavior, treatment, and adaptive strategies of a rapidly growing, but understudied population. By including data from France, Dr. Free helps us to see the role of culture as related to the role of biology in the aging process. That broad scale view enhances our understanding of aging as a general process."- Edward I. Fry, Professor Emeritus Department of Anthropology Southern Methodist University

Book Description

A major contribution to the new genre of nursing home ethnography, this study of wealthy, powerful, cognitively intact elders adds another dimension to our perception of institutionalized retirement.
