This piece covers planning for elderly care. The Orthodox Jewish Home for the aged requested The Jewish Charities to make a study of the Home to determine, among other things, the status of the residents and applicants with special reference to their need of institutional or of community care. One of the findings of the study was that 35 percent of the residents did not appear to need institutional care and could have adjusted well outside the institution. As result of this study efforts were made to address these issues. The piece concludes by highlighting the success of the efforts. In addition to providing a medium through which the various agencies think and plan together, for the development and coordination of policies and programs for the care of the Jewish age and chronic sick, the Council also cooperated with other community agencies concerned with the problem of the aged and chronic sick toward the formulation and maintenance of standards in this field.
