Family Agency Service in Meeting the Problems of the Aged

By Hilda Cordish

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1946

The services that any agency can offer are limited by its function and the particular cultural and religious group it serves. The effectiveness of its services is, in turn, influenced by the attitudes of the community upon whom it depends to provide the facilities to implement these services. Family casework has distinctive services to offer in helping aged people adjust to the most difficult period of their lives. This piece discusses family casework services for the aged using the experience of the Jewish Family and Children's Bureau in Baltimore.
