Community Centers and the Elderly: An American and Israeli Comparison
The study compared the structure and content of programs and services for the elderly in community centers in Israel and North America. Based on a study of 60 centers in Israel and a pilot study of seven centers in North America, the Israeli centers were found to have higher rates of participation, while the American centers were found to employ workers with higher degrees of gerontological training and be less dependent on government and community services.
