Worldwide nations have concerns centered on what has come to be called the "elder care crisis." Such a crisis is pre-supposed by a one-way exchange of services – from caregiver to care recipient and younger to elder population within the community. The purpose of this community-based ethnographic field research conducted in St. Lucia, West Indies, was to explore and describe how community-dwelling frail elders obtained the commodities and services they need to live in an environment with limited formal resources for elder care. Networks for care of community-dwelling frail elders were described and analyzed. Using participant observation, interviews (individual, longitudinal, and focus group), and network analysis of 14 village families, networks for care are described. Rather than one-way provision of care, what emerged were dynamic systems of exchange built on the temporal dimensions of reciprocity, visitation, and community capacity. Implications for nursing are addressed. AN: MN030342
