Abstract

This research adopted a social interpretive framework informed by symbolic interactionism and dramaturgy. The key finding was that a social order of practice was constructed in the residential aged care facilities through participant interpretations of spatial and temporal frames within the RACF setting. The participants used space and time to organise and mediate the ways in which they worked with people with dementia who wander.
