The Benjamin Rose Institute is a voluntary agency committed to support for and care of the aged that focuses on sustaining the elderly as happy and contributing members of their communities. The author highlights key characteristics common among many aged individuals and offers suggested responses to the challenges of aging. She notes that the Benjamin Rose Institute not only brings needed counseling and resources to the aged of Cleveland but it also serves as an eyewitness to the needs of the elderly, providing information to institutes around the country.
