The Resident's Role in the Administrative Process of a Home for the Aged
As a person ages, she occupies fewer roles and therefore perceives her purpose in life diminishing; this process has the tendency to reach its peak in retirement homes. In order to improve the standard of living and general well-being of residents of old age homes, the author proposes widespread acceptance of practices that involve residents in making decisions about the administration and maintenance of their facilities. Four examples are given of issues successfully addressed by the Montreal Hebrew Old People's Home, which established a Residents' Assembly as well as a Residents' Executive Committee. Homes for the aged can better honor their residents by incorporating structures of self-government like these into their administrative structures.
