Perceived factors which shape decision-making around the time of residential care admission in older adults: A qualitative study

Aim: To understand the perceived factors that shape decision-making around the time of residential care admission in older people.

Method: Two qualitative methods (telephone interviews at intervals post discharge from geriatric inpatient care and face-to-face interviews with older people and their family carers) were used as part of a multiphase mixed methods study of a cohort of 144 older people discharged from medical wards in a subacute assessment, treatment and rehabilitation facility.
