Published results: In and outside the nursing home: On the (im)possibilities of meaningful contact while being held apart

Results from the qualitative subproject on older people have published a piece in the science and technology blog journal Somatosphere. The piece shares the stories of two people: Catherine, who experiences loneliness, not being allowed to leave her room in the institution she lives in, and Ben, who feels the loss and grief of not being allowed to visit his wife Lise, who suffers from dementia, in the nursing home.
