The Nation's Rural Elderly. Hearing Before the Special Committee on Aging, United States Senate, Ninety-Fifth Congress, First Session, Part 8, Flagstaff, Arizona.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate.
This Hearing focuses on conditions of the rural elderly in northern Arizona. Arizona has many service programs to respond to the elderly's everyday problems. Some of these problems are unique, but others are similar to those experienced by older Americans throughout the nation. Topics addressed include: transportation, health care services, housing, nutrition programs, community senior centers, the Older Americans Act, legal services, local support of services, the Joint Simplication Act, and inadequate funding. Information collected will be used to develop and implement a national policy on aging. (Author/JLL)
