Homes for Aged and the Chronically Ill

By Julius Savit

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, December 1932

In the field of old age relief, the institution, equipped with infirmary and hospital facilities, is designed to preserve and further the social and religious ideas treasured by the wards. It is arranged such everything that the elderly need for their contentment is at their disposal, while at the same it removes them from friction with younger, incompatible elements. The institution should thus form the nucleus of every widespread remedial program. On the other hand there is little prospect that old age pensions will to a substantial extent take the place of the Homes for Aged, and conceivably, we may expect as a result of outdoor relief an increase in the demand for institutional facilities.
