Social Policies for the Aged: A Parsonian Interpretation
Monk, Abraham
Social Work, 16, 3, 97-103, Jul 71
Social policies for the aged are examined in terms of the five action dilemmas outlined by Talcott Parsons. The study shows that the aged receive basic services, but are deprived of a meaningful place in the family, a measure of social authority, and activities that are functionally valuable and personally satisfying.
