Traduction en anglais : Assistance in old age - some observations by the health service.
Problems of old age and ways of helping the old were discussed with various social and age groups, among them secondary pupils as well as people living in old people's homes.
The main questions which arose were:
« How can one give a purpose to one's old age? » - « How does one win sufficient recognition? » - « What can be done to avoid, or overcome, isolation? » Most senior citizens were in favour of spending their old age in their familiar surroundings - either on their own or with their families, in whose life they wanted to participate.
Our inquiries have shown that there are more institutions than generally assumed which offer advice and help and can be consulted by those in particular who have decided against living in an old people's home.
