A survey compared the experiences of 47 NESB residents in mainstream and 46 residents in ethno‐specific nursing homes and the experiences of their family carers. Residents were more satisfied with ethno‐specific homes, particularly the food and companionship. They had better relationships with staff. Carers were more satisfied with ethno‐specific homes, particularly the food. Both groups of residents had similar patterns of reaction to placement as did their carers. The aged in ethno‐specific homes had migrated at a younger age and their carers seemed better informed regarding services.
