Function of a Home for the Aged and the Integrative Role of the Administrator
A home for the aged differs from a treatment institution insofar as a resident in such a home requires a "continuous stream of service" rather than a single service addressing a specific problem. A resident who has chosen to live in a home for the aged is a whole person whose problems and needs transcend the competency and responsibility of any one staff member. Therefore, a home administrator must consider social work, medical, and nursing factors in making decisions about residents.
