This paper provides insight into strategies used by social care initiatives to create caring environments for people with a variety of abilities and disabilities. The analysis is guided by the concept of 'micropublic places' and builds on research about changing spaces of care and three types of spatial, symbolic and public-private boundary logics. Using ethnographic methods, we map three hybridization strategies that challenged spatial separations of functions, professional diagnostic labels, and public-private distinctions While these hybridization strategies have been analyzed separately in literature about specific vulnerable groups like psychiatric patients, this analysis shows how they combined to form new spaces of care.

The purpose of this 1990 federal act is to assure that individuals receiving health care services will be given an opportunity to participate in and direct health care decisions affecting themselves. Under this act, hospitals, health care agencies, and health maintenance organizations are responsible for developing patient information for distribution. The information must include patients' rights, advance directives, living wills, ethics committees' consultation and education functions, limited medical treatment (support/comfort care only), mental health treatment, resuscitation, restraints, surrogate decision making and transfer of care.
