Developments in Aging: 1976. Part 1. A Report of the Special Committee on Aging, United States Senate, Pursuant to S. Res. 373, March 1, 1976 Resolution Authorizing a Study of the Problems of the Aged and Aging Together with Minority Views. 95th Congress, 1st Session. Report No. 95-88.
The first part of a report by the Special Committee on Aging of the United States Senate provides additional evidence about the need for far-ranging federal attention to the needs and aspirations of older Americans. A number of difficulties such as special transportation needs in rural areas, contradictions in policies and programs, and disaster relief for the elderly are discussed. However, many positive developments such as actions taken at the State level to increase the variety and support of programs are described. (VG)
