Nurses frequently encounter patients who neglect their personal hygiene and household cleanliness.
Self-neglect is usually understood within the parameters of the medical model, with its need to objectify and categorize.
The medicalization of self-neglect obscures the fact that patients and professionals may have different ideas about what self-neglect is and what it is not.
This paper explores how the medical construction of self-neglect has come to dominate the self-neglect discourse and will also explore other possible ways of understanding self-neglect.
