    Abstract

    The care-seeking process used by elders residing in a continuing-care retirement community to elicit care from caregivers and engage caregivers in care interactions is described. Generated from 8 months of ethnographic field research that incorporated semistructured interviewing, participant observation, and focus group interviewing data collection strategies with 47 elders, the care-seeking process emerged as the sequential phases and stages that evolved over time in elders' interactions with their formal and informal caregivers. The findings extend what is currently known about the active and thoughtful role elders assume in their care interactions. An understanding of the ways elders elicit care and engage caregivers may assist nurses to maximize their care interactions with elders.
