Can care homes be transformed to offer conditions of dignity and respect for all those who live in, work in, and visit in nursing homes? Can care homes be transformed to promote pleasure and joy? The contributing research team members’ answer to these questions is YES. But they offer caveats and cautions about the challenges ahead. Addressing care home issues is not a merely matter of repair or minor reform, although both could improve care. To achieve the goals of dignity and respect, care homes need a revolution.
