Abstract: Patients who neglect personal hygiene, household cleanliness and their own health are familiar to most nurses. Despite this familiarity, self-neglect is a poorly conceptualized and little researched phenomenon. This multiple case study design uncovers the perceptions of self-neglect held by professionals, patients and relatives. The assumptions which underpin Orem's Theory of Self-Care and the medical model construction of self-neglect are explored and it will be suggested that there are limitations in understanding self-neglect using these theoretical frameworks.
