The Institution for the Aged in the Total Community Plan

By Ben L. Grossman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1948

The piece covers the presence of an institution of the aged in a community plan. The author asserts that institutions for the aged are no longer custodial institutions. They are now therapeutic agencies for both social and medical therapy and must also have a firm professional and social community plan. A well-coordinated program between an institution and group work agency will tend to help both agencies in learning more about the recreational and occupational desires and needs of older people. Through such a program, the piece concludes that the aged will be given an opportunity to live a fuller, more enjoyable, and worthwhile life.
