L’utilité de ce genre d’institutions est incontestable. Car le monde moderne est sans cesse confronté à des innovations, médicales ou autres, qui s’appliquent à l’homme ou à son environnement proche. Ce lieu est donc nécessaire pour préparer la matière intellectuelle qui sera ensuite transférée aux citoyens afin que ceux- ci puissent se prononcer quant à la légitimité de ces innovations.

Annelieke Driessen is a PhD Candidate at the University of Amsterdam. As part of the Anthroplogy of Care research group she conducted fourteen months of participant observation in three Dutch nursing homes for people with dementia. She is interested in how ways of living well with dementia are brought about in care interactions among people, and between people and their physical environment. In her work she is concerned with practices in which residents and care workers seek to come to an 'aligned wanting' as part of good care; practices in which pleasure in the daily care activities in the nursing home is sought and brought about, and what this may teach us about life with dementia; practices of food provision and the kinds of knowledge that these require and give rise to; and the interaction between built environments and a building's users, and how possibilities of action shape what living with dementia may come to be.
