Group Work in a Home for the Aged: The Role of the Worker
The author discusses how social group workers can address issues related not only to clients but also to the social structures and contexts of which they are a part, using as an example his own experience at a home for aged blind in New York. He describes processes of relationship-building with residents and staff, and accomplishments such as a redistribution of power more equally among the institution's treatment disciplines, the development of an integrated treatment approach, communication of case work goals to the general staff, and the involvement of the social worker in decisions affecting institutional policy.
