End of the line: inside Canada's nursing homes
Canada has one of the highest rates of institutionalization of elderly people in the world. As the population ages, the number of elderly Canadians in nursing homes will grow by leaps and bounds.
In "End of the Line," Maria Bohuslawsky offers a detailed look at Canada's nursing homes, focusing both on the institutions themselves and on the people inside them. Through sketches of nursing-home residents and their families, as well as nursing-home staff, she paints a picture of the homes that leaves nothing unexplored.
First published in 1989, "End of the Line" remains a timely and provocative examination of the quality of care experienced by senior citizens in Canada's nursing homes.
