Preventive Health Care for the Elderly: A Model for Senior Centers

By Michael J. Salamon, Penny Charytan, Cindy E. McQuade

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1981

Medical care, as it is currently organized, treats the senior only after something critical occurs, such as a heart attack, rather than supporting those activities necessary for good health: nutrition, exercise, health education, social and recreational activities. More attention needs to be paid by health professionals to helping older persons maintain independence and remain actively involved in life. Yet, preventing illness is not a medically reimbursable service even for the elderly for whom it is significantly important in maintaining a higher quality of life.
