Abstract:
Purpose: This study will provide an interpretive synthesis of the meaning of home as represented in a body of qualitative literature. Background: The Green House Movement, The Eden Alternative, "Culture Change" facilities, Assisted Living and other residential long-term care environments have explicitly sought to become more home-like. Qualitative data embedded in individual studies of home have the potential to inform these efforts and to guide prospective research related to person-environment relationships in diverse residential settings. Methods (Design, Participants, Setting, Data Collection, Analytic approach): Purposeful sampling will be done using CINAHL, Medline, PsycINFO, EMBASE and Dissertation Abstracts International. Additional sources will be identified through snowball sampling and texts will be included in the sample. A review of abstracts will determine eligible studies and texts published in English from 1990 to 2006. To be eligible for the metasynthesis, the study must explore the meaning or experience of home for an individual or group that includes individuals age 65 and older. The study must use (or include in a triangulated study) qualitative methods including content analysis, phenomenology, ethnography, narrative analysis or an unspecified qualitative analysis. Noblit and Hare's (1988) analytic approach to meta-ethnography will be used. Central metaphors and concepts will be translated into one another followed by a synthesis of translations. Results: Results will present an empirical/analytical analysis of the studies sampled and will explore the disciplinary, theoretical and methodological contexts influencing study findings. Conclusions and Implications: The results of the empirical analysis will enhance understanding of the nature of home in context and will inform efforts to improve quality of living in residential long-term care settings. The discussion of research contexts will provide a perspective on the direction and limitations of knowledge development in this area. The results will inform future research to test interventions that enhance the experience of home.
