A New Paradigm for the Old

By David M. Dunkelman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1994

A new framework of services to the aged is proposed based on three interactive domains" gerontological Iaws, organizational laws, and the laws of self-interest. Each of these domains has changed so dramatically in recent years that the old paradigm of aging services is no longer functional. A crucial underlying principle of the new framework is that families have an ongoing moral obligation to take care of their parents that supersedes that of the community.
