It is assumed that those individuals residing in nursing homes have poor health\ud and little control over their lives. As a consequence there has been little\ud research on this group of people in connection with empowerment. This paper\ud draws upon the narratives of older women residing in two Ontario nursing\ud homes and the frontline workers providing their care. It will illustrate how\ud living environments and the practices of health care workers influence\ud residents’ personal narratives. Emphasis will also be given to how past\ud lifestyles and personal biographies can help older people to maintain\ud empowering thoughts even when experiencing various health conditions.
