Janelle Taylor is a medical anthropologist, trained in sociocultural anthropology and ethnographic methods. Over the past ten years, her interest in social and cultural dimensions of health and medicine has come to focus more specifically on aging, dementia, and caregiving. This has led her to engage more closely with demographic approaches to questions such as population aging, migration patterns of the eldercare workforce, and shifting patterns of family and residence as these affect eldercare needs and resources.
