The Nation's Rural Elderly. Hearing Before the Special Committee on Aging, United States Senate, Ninety-Fifth Congress, First Session. Part 11, Phoenix, Arizona, The Elderly Indian.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate.
This Hearing concerns the nation's rural elderly, and focuses on the Elderly Indian in Arizona. Problems addressed include: the lack of transportation, the lack of adequate housing and nursing homes, the scarcity of home care and homemaking services, and insufficient income. Programs in existence, as well as programs that are needed are discussed. The Older Americans Act, which provides support to persons 60 years and older and their spouses, regardless of income level, is examined in relation to its current funding limitations to potential Indian recipients. Information collected will be used to develop and implement a national policy on aging. (Author/JLL)
