Family Agency Service for the Aged

By Elsie L. Heller, Edith L. Lauer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1945

Heller discusses the diverse range of models of social services to the elderly, and the necessity of considering a number of complicating factors unrelated to age that can make each case unique. She illustrates these issues using case examples from her agency, Westchester Jewish Community Services in White Plains, NY. Lauer responds, echoing Heller's call for greater cooperation between agencies in defining and providing services.
