Material developed for a national conference of leaders in the applied and theoretical sectors of gerontology, mental health, and nursing home administration is provided in these proceedings.

The sections of the proceedings are as follows: Foreword; Prefatory Remarks; Introduction, by Jerome Kaplan; Themes and Issues--Major Perspectives, by Walther M. Beattie, Jr.; The Concept of Wholeness in Long-Term Care Facilities; An Examination of Mental Health Principles by a Psychiatrist, an Administrator, and an Educator--Concerning Decent Institutional Care, by Robert N.
