My PhD project is about lived everyday experience of nursing home residents. I did my 12-month fieldwork in two aged care homes in Adelaide. The key finding that reported in my thesis is that, for many nursing home residents, daily experience is affected by how they could be assisted to move. Movement and care are essential aspects of residents daily living in nursing home environment.
