Reaching the Aged in the Institutional Community
By Sara Olstein
At the kosher, orthodox Home and Hospital for the Aged in New York City, predominantly black and Puerto Rican staff served an aged, Eastern European-born Jewish population. Residents tended to develop relationships with the staff and local community primarily according to their own personality structures. The majority of residents were skilled workers in integrated unions, which may have helped some residents in adjusting to their relationships with the Home staff. Community-based programs such as a Christmas-Chanukah party with the local public school helped residents fend off the tendency to withdraw into social isolation.
