Reality Orientation Versus Sheltered Workshops as Treatment for the Institutionalized Aging
MacDonald, Marian L.; Settin, Joan M.
Journal of Gerontology, 33, 3, 416-20, May 78

Program effects were assessed before and after treatment using three variables: the Life Satisfaction Index-A, nurses' ratings, and behavior observations. Sheltered Workshops may be more beneficial for this population. (Author)
