By Rochelle Dworkin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1959

This piece explores the use of non-institutional living arrangements to meet the needs of aged people. The author highlights the various obstacles to promoting services for aged populations. In addition, a description of the program is included with the rates for boarding, the application process to the residence and the specific casework services involved. The piece concludes by affirming that it is possible to create low cost family-type residence for aged persons as well as offering the opportunity for aged persons to not be separated from the community and to remain both active and independent.
