Changing Social Orientation of the Jewish Aged--A Profile
The 1960 census revealed that over 95% of elderly people do not live in institutions. Therefore, social services for the elderly should be directly incorporated into the "social institution" rather than relegated to institutions set aside particularly for the elderly. As housing, medicine, and protective services, for example, incorporate concerns for the elderly, older people will better be able to remain integrated into their families and the broader society. Community planning is crucial to achieve this end, and the Jewish community can turn to its federations and social welfare initiatives to provide essential support for the elderly.
