Enlarging Choices for the Aged: The Role of the Federal Government and Service Agencies

By Robert Morris

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1965

The predicted growth in the elderly population of the United States will pose challenges to Jewish agencies, other agencies (sectarian and non-sectarian) and governments, the author explains. He outlines some trends relating to elderly residence patterns, including nursing homes, mental health facilities and other institutions, as well as public and private housing. The author further discusses challenges of medical care, social activity, and community organization. As the concept of comprehensive care continues to widen, the author predicts, strain will be placed upon the community organization process.
