In addition to the mortality risk, the pandemic presents grave health and economic risks by disrupting services to older adults tha...
Article
The COVID‒19 pandemic has highlighted the ease in which ageist language is employed and ageist stereotypes are used to characterize older adults. These are harmful and display an impressive lack of future thinking - as younger and middle-aged adults who use this language and forward these concepts also hope to live long lives. The disproportionatel...

Article
Surveillance cameras are increasingly being deployed in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, with insufficient attention to what is ethically fraught about this way of assuaging concerns about abuse and other personnel challenges. With seven state laws now regulating camera monitoring and more on the way, it is urgent for us to consider th...
Article
The emergence of consumer-purchased monitoring devices in shared, intimate spaces presents new challenges to privacy and its protection. Web-enabled video cameras, which allow family members to monitor one another in the name of care, are among the most prevalent technologies in this vein. These cameras have recently gained traction for remote moni...
Conference Paper
The emergence of affordable web-enabled video cameras normalizes their use for care purposes. With growing ease of access and affordability, families with loved ones in nursing homes or assisted living communities commonly turn to cameras to protect elders in residential care from the possibility of harm. Six states have now passed laws to regulate...
Article
Using 2016/17 survey data, we estimated the national prevalence of the processes and structures promoted by the nursing home (NH) culture change movement. We administered the 2016/17 nationwide survey to 2,142 NH administrators at NHs that previously responded to our 2009/10 survey, and the response rate was 74% (1,584). From responses, we created...
Article
Background and objectives: Given the dynamic nursing home (NH) industry and evolving regulatory environment, depiction of contemporary NH culture-change (person/resident-centered) care practice is of interest. Thus, we aimed to portray the 2016/2017 prevalence of NH culture change-related processes and structures and to identify factors associated...

Article
Models of successful aging based primarily on the avoidance of disease, disability, and functional loss set up the majority of the older adult population for failure—a majority of whom are women, in particular, women of color. This article explores the ableism embedded in successful aging, as enacted through a medical model approach to disability....

Conference Paper
There is little published research on the effects or desirability of cameras used in nursing home resident rooms to detect or deter abuse, yet policy makers are making decisions about how to regulate their use for this purpose. In the United States, there is no federal law to regulate camera use, but five states now have electronic monitoring laws...
Conference Paper
We examined culture change practices within the same U.S. nursing homes (NHs) in 2009/10 and 2016. The proportion of NHs engaged in at least some culture change practices remained steady (87.2% vs. 87.7%). We calculated changes in scores across three domains using items measured at both time points (homelike physical environment, staff empowerment,...
Conference Paper
A key component of culture change is staffing empowerment supported by nursing home management. On the labor side, collective bargaining is one strategy to improve labor conditions; however, it is unknown if unionized facilities implement staff empowerment practices associated with culture change. In this paper, we examine changes in nursing assist...

Evidence on effective fall prevention strategies for community‐dwelling older adults with dementia is limited, although these older adults are at high risk of falling. Informal care partners (families, friends, partners, neighborhood) may play an essential role in managing fall risk for older adults with dementia. However, little is known about how to engage care partners in managing fall risk for these older adults. This project is to examine informal care partners' experiences in managing fall risk for community-dwelling older adults living with dementia.
