This article discusses the results of a Concept Mapping, held to clarify the concept of small-scale group living for elderly with dementia. Seventeen experts from different backgrounds formulated 91 statements about small-scale group living. These were subsequently depicted on a concept map with two dimensions: care versus living and individual versus context. The statements were then divided into six clusters by hierarchical clusteranalysis. Five of these clusters centred around the arrangements of the individual lives of the residents and the collective lives of residents and staff, while only one held statements about the physical characteristics of small-scale group living. Therefore, it can be concluded from this Concept Map that small-scale group living is not so much determined by the physical characteristics but by the organisational features of the care context.
