Planned Occupation and Social Activities in a Home for the Aged
There is a prevailing attitude that a home for the aged served its purpose if it provided shelter, food, and care in sickness and in health. Unfortunately, the mental well-being and purpose of the elderly was not taken as seriously as the physical needs. In 1930 three homes for the aged, in cooperation with the Welfare Council of New York, decided to address the mental needs of their elderly inhabitants and began an experiment that allowed individuals to work in a wide variety of areas.
