The Changing Focus in Geriatric Care; the Role of the Social Worker in Rehabilitation, Restoration, Return to Community

By Sidney Feinberg

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1974

The author describes the shift in his agency (The Jewish Institute for Geriatric Care in New Hyde Park, NY) from the traditional model of elder care to a new model. While the old model focused on providing a nurturing "cocoon" within the institution in which the elders lived out the rest of their lives, the new model favors three R's -- rehabilitation, restoration and return to community. The author details his agency's process in pursuit of these goals.
