Journal of Gerontology, 31, 3, 352-357, May 76
Male extended-care patients (N=81) relocated due to planned demolition of the building in which their ward was located were followed for 21 months in an effort to examine the influence of relocation on mortality. Results show no increased mortality thus suggesting the degree of environmental change may be important. Paper presented at Canadian Association on Gerontology, Toronto, October 23, 1975.
