This chapter identifies the different care environments of the homes in the study. The Sheltered Care Environment Scale was included in the Staff Questionnaire. Although their mean score for cohesion was very similar to those for 'all homes' and 'residential homes only' in US study scores for conflict were very much lower than in the present study indicating less conflict. The originators of the Sheltered Care Environment Scale devised a social climate typology which uses the seven sub-scales to classify homes by regime type. Using a simpler typology, namely Booth's three-way classification of homes, Netten carried out a cluster analysis of 13 residential homes using Sheltered Care Environment Scale data. The data were explored for possible relationships between the homes' cluster membership and a number of other variables. Scores have been computed for one home where only four staff responded and these data should be treated with caution.
