With expansion, the home-care market is becoming more diverse and more competitive. For-profit agencies are multiplying. Nursing homes and hospital systems are moving beyond their institutional walls to provide an array of home- and community-based services. Managed care organizations are enrolling record numbers of individuals and families. They and other third-party payers are aggressively shopping among home-care providers, seeking better value for money. The articles that comprise this book, commissioned by the Milbank Memorial Fund and the Visiting Nurse Service of New York, address these issues.

Living homeless with an infant was the lowest point. Trying to succeed with short educational courses, giving birth to 3 daughters by the age 22, and living on welfare had to end. Discovering college was the beginning of a new life earning 3 degrees, raising 3 successful daughters and now living successfully in middle class America.

Focusing on ways that social inquiry might be conducted with marginalised groups to promote social justice, the text offers chapters on: * Telling 'alternative' stories through a variety of methods from crafts to digital film * Visual and metaphorical approaches to social research including photography, art and poetry * Performative methods that include drama, dance, music and performance art Foster introduces relevant methodological debates, giving a context for understanding when arts-based research can be a fruitful approach to take and outlining a convincing rationale for using the arts as a way of understanding and representing the social world. The book also suggests a range of alternative criteria for evaluating the quality of arts-based research. Illustrative examples from around the world are used throughout the book and an extended case study is included that focuses on Foster's own collaborative arts-based research. With their emphasis on the value of participative research and social justice, arts-based methodologies are becoming increasingly popular in health and social research.
