Case Work in Homes for the Aged
The author discusses aspects of caring for the elderly from the perspectives of social case work and social services in an institutional context, based on the experience of her agency, the Home for Aged and Infirm Hebrews in New York. Since relatively few applicants can be accepted, she explains, the application and intake process is among the most important contribution of the social worker. The author further describes services provided after admission, including efforts to preserve the client's relationships to the community, activity programs, and other considerations.
