By Edward Prager

Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1986

In Israel, as elsewhere, spouses and adult children caring for their frail aged are themselves "hidden patients," whose unique needs are largely overlooked by the human serivces community. This article describes a video outreach project in Israel, intended to provide groups of family caregivers with the educational and supportive guidance needed to help them to cope more effectively with their burdens, and to alleviate feelings of alienation, powerlessness, and resentment.
