Abstract

Exploration of factors influencing the quality of care and subsequent outcomes of residents in nursing home settings is crucial as the older population continues to grow exponentially. A conceptual model of attractiveness is proposed that encompasses characteristics of residents that draw staff toward or away from them, thus influencing the quality of care provided and outcomes. Case study application is used to depict the interplay of the model with the provision of resident care and outcomes.
