Elder Care – Elderly (1978)

Maintaining the Dignity of the Elderly (1978)

Sisterhood women can be of invaluable help in making it possible for the elderly to maintain their own homes. We recommend that they not only volunteer for special services such as shopping, telephone reassurance, visiting, etc., but secure the help of young people through United Synagogue Youth, for such volunteer service.

We also recommend that they urge their Jewish Federations to secure government funding to set up special senior citizen housing where the senior citizens will have their own apartments.

We further urge Sisterhood women to volunteer for special services to these senior apartment dwellers.
